How has your education impacted your career and your life?

My education not only qualified me and trained me for my career, but allowed me to take charge of my future. After I graduated I was able to choose what I wanted to do, where I wanted to live, and how I wanted to live. I have attained things that without college, wouldn't have been options.

From where you are now, what do you believe about the role of education, especially college?

A college education is crucial for the students of Texas. Talented, smart, and capable Texans maximizing their potential cannot happen with out it.

What advice do you have for the students of Generation TX?

Start thinking about your education early. Do the things you need to do to get there. GO TO COLLEGE! Go to the most challenging institution that will take you, and meet that challenge with hard work and commitment. Improve your future

Why do you believe in Generation TX?

This group of people that are just a few years younger than me are going to change what Texas looks like for hundreds of years. Once this generation of talented individuals gets educated, starts careers, and has families, it will raise the standards, accessibility, and EXPECTATIONS for the generations that follow.

What are your goals as a GenTX supporter?

To improve my state's, students', and personal future by increasing the number of students applying to, attending, and graduating from college.
