At the age of eighteen, I went to America dreaming that I would get a bachelor degree and build a good life. Back then, the way to success was beautifully imagined in my mind.

Shortly, I quit school and felt depress; the dreams of an easy life collapsed too swift and it was hard to comprehend. I was so young; I was nineteen year old.

The Army paid for my education as long as I work hard and diligence. Often, I had to stay up past midnight to do courses’ work; I was keen and had a goal. After four years, I got an Associate Degree paid for by the Army.
