WGU Student Newsletter July 2016

In her early years, Amelia Earhart’s passion and desire to fly was hindered by lack of funds. However, she never allowed any circumstance dictate an outcome – only her choices and attitude could do so. As a teenager and into her young adult years, she worked many different jobs to make ends meet and to put away as much money as possible to make her dream of flying a reality. Being a successful WGU student also requires sacrifice, consistent effort, determination, and drive. Like Amelia, sometimes you must push yourself to places you never thought you would go, and your choice to return to school and earn your degree with WGU shows you are willing to do what it takes to succeed in life and your career. Way to go, Night Owl!
