Growing up as a child, I had always dreamed of being successful like most kids do. Little did I know that I
would take an unorthodox path.
Growing up, I had always envisioned of attending The Ohio State University for a business degree and
having the opportunity to represent Buckeye Nation. I started preparing for this in High School by taking
accounting and business classes and was extremely successful with them. At that time, I had no idea
