I’m a tenth grade drop out who grew up in poverty. Passed the GED in 1984 while serving the empire’s Navy. Started community college in 1988 and transfered to UCLA in 1991. Was forced to drop out because of dire economic reasons in 1994.
Returned to UCLA in the Fall 2013 and earned an “A” in my Capstone Seminar (Classics 191). Declared for W14, and am enrolled in my final two courses now. I’m UCLA Class of 2014, and I couldn’t be more happy or proud.
Many thanks to my wife, who pushed me to return and finish.
