Q:How does your experience in military service shape your career track or correlate with a business career?
A:I am extremely grateful to have served in the U.S. Army. Having joined the military at the age of 35, most people would agree I joined very late. However, as I see it, the U.S. military gave me the opportunity to start my life over. In Kenya where I am originally from, I would have been long retired by the age of 35. Now, with the education I am currently acquiring from Northeastern, my future is a lot brighter.
