I have about a week left here in the States until I leave for Birmingham. My wife and I now have our visas in hand and are starting to pack and get all our things in order. It was a little stressful waiting for our visas, but we were very exciting after received them in the mail.
This summer has been quite a whirlwind with family vacations and work all over the world. Now that the summer is coming to an end, we are just about ready to make the long plane ride to the UK to start on my master’s degree. This summer started with me finishing my undergraduate degree at Brigham Young University at the end of April. To continue my education and increase my skillset, I went to Ghana to do market research and helped build a company that coaches/consults SME’s in developing countries. It was a great opportunity to learn how a startup works and learn what it takes to grow a successful company. While I was there I was able to meet lots of inspirational people and was exposed to new business opportunities.
I am now looking forward to growing in my professional and personal life as I go to Aston University. Learning has become something that I love and I hope to do a lot of it while at Aston. I am eager to meet people from all over the world and be exposed to different cultures. From what I have heard and experienced, Aston is a great place to be to gain an international perspective. I can’t wait to get started!
