Since graduating high school, Julian Rosario had the opportunity to volunteer in Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico, Paraguay, Argentina, Brazil and El Salvador. He has spent time working with youth in rural and urban communities. Now, at 31, Julian decided to return to school and apply all the knowledge and experiences he acquired throughout his life in an academic setting. Being a non-traditional student, Julian views school differently than he did when he was younger and now he embraces the challenges of academic learning. Having had so many incredible life experiences, he now feels the next step is to complete his education and obtain a doctoral degree. Julian believes the purpose of learning is to enlighten oneself, and in turn share that knowledge with others. As a lifelong student and eventual teacher, he is motivated by his passion to share and spread knowledge to others.
