Patrick was born and raised in Cameroon where education is very expensive. When his mother passed away in 2008, Patrick left school to work so his brothers could go to school. In the United States Patrick continued to work full time as a parking attendant to help support his eight siblings. Patrick soon decided to go back to school and in May earned his Health Information Technology Certificate with honors at Bunker Hill Community College. This fall he will continue his studies toward an Associates degree in network technology and administration and hopes to find his dream job as a network technician at a large corporation.
