    More Than Anything In The World

    I have always wanted to get to the highest level of education, I don't know why. I was pretty close to it, but then I married and have a wonderful daughter. I will try that a bit later.

    I'm currently doing my undergraduate studies.

    My lecturer shared with the class his background and he has a PHD too. He was so motivational and inspiring. After class, I was inspired and I do aspire getting a PHD in something.
