Remember, that no matter where you live or where you are in life, it’s never too late to pursue a university certificate or degree. Trust me, if I can attain a bachelors degree and a master’s degree being paralyzed from the shoulders down and from a wheelchair, then anyone can. All it takes is a commitment to making the time to attend class and to do your homework and study! Please forward to others who may be interested.
