拉苏尔·阿里吸取了一些人生教训但现在, 在开始工程科学项目将近六年之后, his perseverance is on display.  毕业于奥尔巴尼的绿色科技高中, Rasul started his higher education at the College of Saint Rose back in 2012, but he admits that he simply wasn't prepared to make that leap from high school to college. After a single semester, he was out of school and working a two jobs to make ends meet and pay off his college debt.  \u201CI got kind of overwhelmed by being in school full-time and working almost full-time and I fell flat. I wasn't managing my time so I dropped out and just kept working,\u201D he said.  After a few years out in the working world, Rasul knew he could accomplish more. Gradually, he started taking a few classes at Hudson Valley through the Office of Continuing Education. \u201CI enrolled in one course and then the next semester I enrolled in another and then I just kept going,\u201D he said. 在第二学期或第三学期, 我知道我想学习工程科学,所以这是我的重点, 但我仍然有很多事情要做.随着2019年春季学期的临近, 拉苏尔意识到,如果他回到全职学习四门课程, 他可以完成学位并计划转学. That\u2019s just what he'll be doing, five and a half years after he started at Hudson Valley.  One person who will watch with pride as Rasul crosses the stage at commencement is his mom. \u201CShe always saw my potential. 她是那种即使你得了90分, 她说这怎么不是95分?\u2019 so yeah she'll be there. She held the bar high for me.\u201D Rasul has some scholarship opportunities and is weighing his financial aid options as he looks to continue his education but he said he looks back with real pride to his accomplishments at Hudson Valley. \u201CI remember back just trying to get through Calc I and thinking \u2018how am I ever going to do this?, but it\u2019s happening. I look at this as a check point. I just want to keep going.\u201D
“I look at this as a check point. I just want to keep going.”
