Anything is possible in life as long you put your mind to it. Success never comes easy and the harder it looks, the greater the fulfillment will be.
I graduated from Mountain View College in Dallas- Texas with an Associates of Art. I am a native French speaker but along with my master in the french language, I also speak English, Spanish and Mina( a dialect of a West African country called TOGO).
I love sharing my knowledge with people because knowledge is power and ignorance is death. I love learning in a fun environment so I like making everything I teach fun.
