None of my family has ever graduated from college. I wanted to challenge myself, and I wanted to be an example for my kids. I wanted them to see me graduate and show them that hard work pays off. I had to believe in myself that I could do it. All of the Valley instructors helped guide me along the way and motivate me, which helped me succeed. Do your best, try hard and don't procrastinate. Anybody can succeed if they put forward the effort!
