Personal Mission Statement
Section I: My Role in My Education
I am attempting to successfully earn a bachelors degree in Computer Hardware Engineering within five years. In order to achieve this goal I will need to adapt to a new environment beyond high school. In college the students have more responsibilities and a higher level of accountability. Balancing priorities such as saving money to help pay for my education and submitting my assignments on time without any reminders.
