Please tell us about your situation when you first came to Keiser University?
I was fresh out of high school and after hearing someone speak from Keiser in one of my classes, decided to go there for college.
Please tell us about any instructors who may hold a special place in your educational history and how they helped to change your life.
Mr. Williams and Mrs. Percy hold a very special place in my educational history, and in my present life. They helped me to grow not only in my design skills, but also in communication and life skills.
Please tell us about any instances you may have experienced where a Keiser University staff member helped you succeed or overcome an obstacle.
Mr. Williams has helped me succeed in many areas, especially in the field of photography which has allowed me to expand my knowledge and skill set across all of the mediums I work in, from magazine covers to print ads to video and web.
How has Keiser University helped to change your life? What is new in your life that would not be there if it were not for your educational experience at Keiser University?
If not for my education at Keiser I probably would not be where I am today, in both life and career. It is because of going to Keiser and the instructors I had that I joined a club started by Mr. Williams, The Lakeland Shooters Photography Group, which allowed me to venture into an amazing and very creative field that I use to enhance all aspects of my life.
Are you working in field? Tell us about your job search process.
