Recently we interviewed US Veteran and Getting Ahead graduate, Howard Anderson.

Here’s a little of what he had to say:

Q: What’s your motto?
A: Pray about everything, and worry about nothing

Q: Any advice you’d like to share with graduates?
A: Trust, believe, and receive. If more of our colleagues were to humble ourselves, we could generate a bond with the rest of our community and actually identify some of their needs and provide… it’s all upon the individual to receive.

Be sure to check out our upcoming August Graduate Newsletter to see the amazing things Mr. Anderson has been doing these days!
