"I took my first class and loved everything about it: the professor, the material, the people I met, and I just had to begin that journey. One of the reasons I came to Pace is because I wanted to get that job in human resources. And I came here, I worked hard, I actually graduated at the top of my class, and I said 'Now that I have this degree, I'm going to go out there and get that HR job.' And I did just that. I have the theoretical background; now I'm going to practice what I've learned, and that, to me, is so exciting, because I've learned so much here. The knowledge, the abilities I have learned, I'm able to take into the real world and just run with it."
