MY EDUCATION

For my high school education, I attended Central Magnet School. Later, I received an MBA degree from Harvard University.

MY CAREER

After I received seven years of project management experience, I applied to be a senior project manager at Mobilitie in West, Texas. At this job, I develop written project plans and coordinate different activities, among other tasks. After taxes, my salary is $69,937.57/yr., which is also $5,828.13/mo. My job is approximately 18.9 miles away from my job, which factors into my gas amount on my monthly budget.

REFLECTION

From this project, my perspective about life has changed. There's so much to consider when planning out your life! I have learned that there are so many more opportunities for careers with higher degrees. The cost of living is very expensive, but with better education, it is easier to pay for your needs. Living with Hannah and Carrington made our rent and utilities lower, so it would be a wise decision to begin living with someone else immediately after college. In addition, taxes take a huge percentage out of your salary. Mine went down 46%! Finally, I am so glad we did this project to learn more about "the real world"!
