As a young boy in Africa, Wilfrid Ky always dreamed of getting a degree in computer science. Originally from Burkina Faso,
West Africa, Wil came to America in 1999 on a student visa, speaking only French. "I soon would find out the true meaning
of learning to survive in America," said Wil. "Not only had I been just recently been exposed to a whole new language and
culture but now I had to contend with learning a whole new career and a future way of life for me in computer science."
He spent long nights learning English with help from his wife. Wil graduated with his associate's degree in computer science in
2003. "I finally felt a bit of relief knowing that my dream was possible," said Wil. "I knew that the sky was the limit and that
doors would start opening for me."
At that time Wil was working full time as a network engineer, but was determined to further his education. He enrolled at
WGU to work on his bachelor's in information technology concentrating in network design and management. Working full-time,
Wil needed something that was flexible and affordable. He completed everything he needed in just under a year.
Wil currently lives in Seattle with his wife, Belinda. He works at Microscan as a network administrator and is in charge of
maintaining close to 40 servers. Headquarters and employees worldwide rely on these servers to perform their
day-to-day job duties.
