Ricky Sengsavang – Bachelor of Science in Business Administration
I went through a temp agency and somehow made my way to Trident. I got hired full on as an employee. Once I started working there, I started seeing the value of the education and then I signed up for classes and started my degree program. As a student, I developed relationships with faculty members as well as people on-sight.
It’s one of the perks of being an employee because I actually work and sit right next to some of the professors and they’ve actually taught me a lot of things. Not only about business but just life in general and some of them are actually my really good friends.
I chose business because that was most related to my degree of study. I’d like to be a Manager one day and move on up to Associate Director and actually become a Director one day. So business made most sense. Dr. Jonathan Ley always encouraged me to do really well in my classes. If I was falling behind, he would send me an email and check up on me, make sure that I’m on top things and if I’m ever falling behind, he would let me know that if I ever needed his help, I can always reach out to him.
My life has been tremendously impacted by education. I really never knew how much education could change one person’s life. Now that I am getting my degree, I know some doors are going to open up for me. I only want to bring out my maximum potential. It’s kind of surreal right now, really didn’t think I would be at this place.
Yesterday I was just kind of like whatever, today it’s like, this is really happening. Yeah, I got my degree. I have an opportunity right in front of me to potentially become a Manager which would basically give me more freedom to do the things that I’d like to do. I’d like to coach, mentor people, build them up, just like how my managers have done for me.
Everything about Trident has been a really wonderful experience. I don’t think I would’ve been able to go into Community College, work full time and get anything done unless I did an online education with the school that I worked for and I love Trident. There’s nothing more to that.
