However, my path lead me away from the university and since becoming a student I’ve never set foot on the campus. I was supposed to go to the university face-to-face in August of 2016, however, my family didn’t want me to leave during the holidays. I had another chance to go face-to-face in July 2017, however, I still had the opportunity to study online so I chose not to go. I currently live with my parents, as money is tight, over 1000 miles from Pensacola in Glen Burnie, Maryland. I’ve lived here in Maryland since December 6, 2016, and I immediately started on my Bachelor’s degree, going to online school with the University of Maryland University College, or UMUC, and I’m still here
