Background Information
Different than most, I dropped out of public high school and decided to instead take the California High School Proficiency Exam. The certificate which you receive if you pass the exam is equivalent to a high school diploma. I then began attending college as a welding student, eventually getting various certifications in welding. After a few years of working in construction, fire, and a few other industries, I returned to college to pursue an engineering degree. I am currently working toward my bachelors degree.
