As a result, I interact best in diverse learning and professional environments. I will remain connected to the military during my initial years with the University of Phoenix for personal and financial reasons. However, once I secure my Bachelor's of Science I will obtain employment in the civilian sector, preferably working for another large organization.

I will achieve my personal goals at the University of Phoenix by participating actively in coursework and engaging professors and students in meaningful discussions. I plan on being an active member of the student body. Because I am used to working in a collaborative environment in the military I will in fact be unable to approach my studies in any other way but through active participation, collaboration, and participation.

Willing to accept good advice as well as to listen closely to the needs of others, I will be an optimal member of the student body at the University. When I graduate and am a working professional I will be able to represent the University of Phoenix with aplomb and success. I look forward to attending; thank you for….....
