The end is near!!
My educational story is a bit different than the average person. Since the advent of the Doomsday Preppers, an American reality television series, I have been able to explain my past with a bit more ease. You see, my parents were Doomsday Preppers who believed that the world was due to end back in the 1980’s. Because of my parents fear, and mental illness, I was pulled out of public school in the 3rd grade. My formal education stopped at that time (period).
But, oh, hey, turns out the world didn’t end in the 1980’s after all. Oh, jee whiz, wowee. How great is that everyone? Well, too bad my parents were willing to gamble my education on that. Now I get to face the world as an illiterate adult. Nice.
I approached this massive setback like I do with everything: slow and steady. I taught myself to read, write, and such. I took adult literacy classes at my local community college and over time I have achieved the following degrees and certificates:
Received general education high school diploma from American School.
Received Communication Officer Certification from the Georgia Public Safety Training Center
Received Certificate in Medical Transcription from Career Step
Received Certificate in Computer Programming from Mesa Community College
Received Associates Degree in Computer Programming from Mesa Community College
Received Certificate in Law Enforcement Technology from Rio Salado College
Received Associates Degree in Law Enforcement Technology from Rio Salado College
Received Peace Officer Safety Training (POST) Certification from the Arizona Law Enforcement Academy (ALEA)
On track to receive Bachelors in Network Administration from University of Arizona
