Second, to having a family of my own, the NAU Personalized learning has been the single most transformative experience of my life. The platform is a portal of discovery that will lead to something that is nothing short of a true enlightenment. All that is required of the student is to accompany the procedures with sincerity, desire and the will; the rest will be guided, nurtured by the NAU program and the ever-present assistance of the NAU faculty members. More importantly, I was able to realistically dream again when I no longer thought it was possible. Nurturing my children and having a fulltime job were my priorities in life, and just as when I was genuflecting in defeat on pursuing an institutional higher education, the NAU Personalized learning came into my view after many months of assiduous research on identifying the best online programs. Qualitatively, quantitively, financially, and realistically, it became crystal clear to me that the NAU Personalized towered over all other institutions, as in worldwide.
Life does not invariably seat all individuals with the “traditional” environment that would be ideal for the individual to be situated in the conventional tertiary educational setting. I was one of those individuals where the traditional institutional learning setting proved to be an unrealistic goal and an elusive one at that. The true genius of the NAU Personalized is that, from the non-traditional learning setting, individuals can attain the traditional goals such as attaining a legitimate education from a State University and a degree that is recognized by the Higher Learning Commission. For me, the experience of the NAU Personalized quickly translated to having a higher standing at work. Perhaps the most important gift I received from NAU is that of hope, the hope I once thought was reserved for other people, and from the gift, I re-discovered that having hope is equally important as any other material essentials in life.
I am an international student that spent the formative years in the US, and in times of hardship I found myself habitually invoking the words of Thomas Jefferson that I once cherished in my heart, but abandoned owing to my circumstances, and they are; “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
These words were only things that solaced my inner being, the words were the only thing that helped me to stand equally with others in spirit because my circumstances certainly didn’t allow it. I will eternally be grateful to the NAU Personalized Learning for the rediscovery of Thomas Jefferson’s words, for, I am a true believer of it now, I can, indeed pursue happiness in this lifetime all thanks to NAU. Thank you NAU Personalized Learning for helping me to become a better husband, a father, a friend, a colleague, and above all a better being.
