GSM: Tell us about a recent success story.
My journey to where I am now is my biggest success story yet. My journey began as being a part of the first graduating class of Early College High School, which gave me a high school diploma and a Associates of Arts Degree as a high school graduate. Upon graduating high school, I was able to continue my education at the University of South Carolina, and in two short years, I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Finance, Marketing and Business Administration from the Darla Moore School of Business. After graduation, I was hired by State Farm Agent Bobby Kelly of Myrtle Beach. Mr. Kelly hired me as an agent aspirant employee, and after five years I was selected to open my own agency in December 2018.
