George, first and foremost, congratulations! Thank you for sharing your amazing story. I feel confident the various algorithms that are paving the future of transportation are in good hands with engineers such as yourself. I am extremely proud to have met you and to have worked with you during those long, late nights solving the Self-Driving Car Nanodegree projects on our own (along with the Udacity Slack community). I look forward to working with more individuals as courageous and confident in themselves as you. Keep up the great work and never lose touch of that fire burning inside of you that keeps you wanting to extract more out of yourself, for yourself. Enjoy your new gig and absorb every bit of knowledge your colleagues share with you. I look forward to meeting up with you soon.
For anyone questioning Udacity’s Nanodegrees, I assure you they are some of the most challenging projects you will ever be encountered with. Solve them and you will truly transform your perspective of the world around you. That is the true test of a quality education platform and Udacity delivers above and beyond all expectations.
I don’t work for Udacity. I am a student, classroom mentor, and project reviewer and I am proud to be riding the wave of the educational future. Together we will do amazing things. See you in class!
