Last September I had an amazing opportunity to visit Maui with my Godmother Vickie. The only downside was that my senior year at The University of Central Florida was just about to begin. I went to the first day of each class, picked up the syllabus, and hopped on a plane to Maui. A funny thing happened when I returned to Orlando. I was elevated to a new level of motivation that I had never experienced before. I became intensely focused on finishing up my finance degree so that I could have another adventure like Maui. Even after I had missed an entire week of classes, I finished the semester with the highest grades of my college career.
