On Life-long Learning


Education is the key to unlock

the golden door of freedom.

George Washington Carver


Learning and education are central for me, and have been a life-long pursuit.


As a first-generation college student, I was fortunate to attend a community college, which was a foundational experience for the rest of my college career.


Education has opened doors and provided opportunities that are well beyond what I dreamed of as a child growing up in Delano, California, a small farming community.


As I have grown older, I am coming to the realization that the more I learn, the more that remains to be known.


What a wonderful and exciting journey!
