Gold Globe

My name is Blue Sky. I am currently enrolled in the Associates of Arts in Church Ministries program with Global University. Ever since I graduated high school in 2018, it has been a dream to go to college, but it didn’t seem possible. I decided to enroll in this program because I never had the opportunity to be part of a school without being thousands of dollars in debt. This new program has been a fantastic opportunity. I have only completed one course, but I have learned so much already and feel closer to God because of it… I look forward to learning more and working towards my goals.
