Rodrigo's Graduation - WE DO HARD THINGS

My husband, Rodrigo, has worked in the Digital Media industry for nearly 15 years now.  When he started out an associate's degree was all the education needed and his starting pay was $45,000...that is a lot of pay for so little education.  Anywho, the industry has changed drastically over these 15 years and in 2008 he decided to go back to school for his Bachelor's degree.  He successfully completed his degree this past April and was honored to have his Senior Project chosen as one of the top eight projects for the 2011-12 year. He directed and helped produce a documentary "Helping Hands" (click the poster for a preview) for a local non-profit organization "The Pete Suazo Business Center"

Needless to say, we are super proud of him.  He finished his last semester with little to no sleep and he pushed himself to be successful even when it seemed all was lost.  I am a firm believer in the principle of "do all you can" and the Lord will make up the difference...2 Nephi 25:23 for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do.

Thanks to my husband's persistence and relentless to drive to succeed I know my boys are beginning to catch the vision of our family motto: "We do hard things".
