From the Paper:

"Not a day went by as a child that I did not hear about the value of education. My mother and father always said to me that I would lead a better life than either of them, because I had greater opportunities. My potential was limitless, as long as I dedicated myself to school and took learning seriously. To think that I have the ability to attain my PhD through the Capella University online doctoral program makes my heart swell with pride, not only for my own accomplishments, but for my parents' sacrifice as well. The ability to be able to complete this graduate degree online, while still working and participating in my various service activities would be invaluable for a busy adult such as myself who wishes to engage in a continual project of self-improvement, one that began so long ago--in some ways, before I was even born. Linguistic and logistical difficulties limited my parents' educational possibilities, but now technology makes access to an education a reality, even for someone working full-time, provided he or she has the ability to multitask and manage his or her workload. This is something I have had to do throughout my life, as I have always had to work to support my education."
