Later, he attended Marshall University in Huntington, W.V. and obtained his B.A. and M.A. in Political Science. His view holds that the world's beauty stems from the diverse parts that construct the whole. With that said, the inclusion of diversity has a productive and profound value that he desires to enhance for society, in research, and overall life.
