I first heard about BYU-Idaho while serving in the Mexico Torreon Mission from some of my mission companions who had previously studied there. I remember having a strong impression that I needed to one day attend BYU-Idaho and that become one of my dreams after returning home from my mission.

Through BYU-Idaho’s Online Degree Programs, I was able to achieve my dream of attending and graduating from BYU-Idaho all while living in Mexico. I am so happy for this because the high academic standards and the spiritual environment I found while attending BYU-Idaho online have brought many blessings to my life. The online classes I have taken have strengthened my family and in my career I have received several promotions since I began studying at BYU-Idaho.

My wife and I will soon be having our first child and I am confident that my BYI- Idaho education will help me in gaining the resources needed to provide for my family now and in the days to come. Earning my degree from BYU-Idaho has helped me feel better prepared for the future and I am so thankful for the inspired Online Degree Programs, which allow students like myself the opportunity to attend this University. I am grateful for the love I feel from my Heavenly Father and for the inspiration to pursue my education online through BYU-Idaho.
