Gye Nyame. Through God, anything is possible. It sounds cliche, but it’s the truth. I started my PhD journey in August 2010. Yesterday, I successfully defended my dissertation. So much happened along the way, and I’m thankful for every experience. They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, it takes an army to finish a PhD. My village became my army and helped me through this process. Many thanks to my ancestors, family, friends, associates, classmates, students, former engineering colleagues, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity brothers, faculty at Morgan State University, colleagues at Tennessee State University, The PhD Project family, and so many others. Special thanks to go my dissertation committee: Drs. Christopher Mathis (chair), Erica Anthony, Robert Singh, and SherRhonda Gibbs. This accomplishment is not my own, but a community victory. Dream big and never stop working. #BeTheDream #BlackBoyFly #TenYearPhD #Business #Management #Entrepreneurship #SocialEntrepreneurship #HBCUalumni
