1. What motivated you to enroll at GCU and pursue degree in higher education?
What motivated me to enroll at GCU was persisted of Mr. Fahad Khan. His calm and willingness personality, to go the extra mile. He helped me through the paperwork process. Oh yeah I won't forget the Subway sandwiches he brought to the cafeteria earlier that day at the high school. You know that saying" feed them and they will come” ((lol). Mr. Fahad Patiently waited for me to finish my part time job before helping me to fill out the paperwork. This is why I enroll in Grand Canyon University.

In my opinion Motivation is the key ingredient for success.

When I think about the class wall lt reminds me that I'm not alone. That there are others who come from all walks of life to pursue the same higher education like myself.

In all honestly I do not know what to expect but l keep an open mind.
