Practice English Speaking&Listening with: Akil King – Boundless Bulls

Difficulty: 0

I spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy as an U.S. Navy Supply Core Officer.

Served overseas in Bahrain, overseas on a deployment in Djibouti and also spent

three and a half years in Japan. It was outstanding serving my country.

But when I when I retired from the Navy, I decided that I wanted to continue my education.

I made the best decision coming to USF and you know I couldn't ask for more support

than through what is given through the Office of Veteran Success.

I've always wanted to study my history; African history, Africana Studies, African American history

and USF has a great program on the graduate level in

Africana Studies and it's just been the perfect situation.

I currently am in the process of applying for a Fulbright Scholarship to be able to teach English

in Rwanda and I've also applied for a critical language scholarship to study

Swahili in Arusha, Tanzania but my ultimate goal is to be either a civil

servant or a diplomat working either in or you know supporting Africa

specifically East Africa.

The education here has been outstanding and I think

it's preparing me for my second career after the Navy.
