Born with cerebral palsy I was told I couldn't walk, so I ran, and I've been running ever since!
Coming from a financially disadvantaged household I knew the answer to whether I would be able to afford my college before I asked, but I had to hear it from my parents. It broke my heart and I was terrified. But in that moment I decided to not let my situation define me so I learned everything I could about web and graphic design so that with a technical skill I could prove my worth without college.
With a friend and an excellent mentor we were able to design my high school's website in sophomore year. With a little momentum I felt free and ready to tackle the new world but it all came crashing down when I realized that websites like Wix made making websites easy and were becoming popular. So when my colleagues were figuring out what to do I had lost my path once again...
I started voraciously reading anything and everything finance so I could afford college again and fell in love with air traffic management. Since then I have worked in aviation simulation, modeling, and as an air traffic controller. I have helped numerous people achieve their greatest ambitions and save hundreds of thousands of dollars.
