This artifact is connected to content knowledge because I have passed and graduated with a bachelors of science degree at Johnson & Wales University in engineering and design. The opportunities I was given after graduation was quite refreshing to see what a college degree can actually do for myself. I have been blessed with work and opportunities that crafted me to become the educator Moloka’i deserves.

I chose this artifact because it is a great way for students to understand the steps it takes in education to pursue the career you want. This artifact shows that a Moloka’i student has the potential and ability to pursue a 4 year college 5,000 miles away from their hometown. Students should feel they are capable for such opportunities and they should be encouraged while trying to pursue a career in something they are passionate about.
