How did UTSA best prepare you for what you are doing now?

“My time at UTSA taught me perseverance. I struggled with a few classes but the help of some caring professors helped me through. I learned to never give up, to keep an eye on the bigger prize. Having faith the hard work would eventually pay off. Additionally, the AFROTC detachment was world-class and prepared me well for me Air Force journey.”
