CCIE

I wanted to take this opportunity to express my deepest appreciation to you and INE. Back at the end of 2012, I began my journey toward the CCIE. I knew going into it, that it would not be an easy task and that I would have to make many sacrifices and give-up much of my free time to my friends and family. When I look back and recount those days in the beginning, I thought I fully understood what was ahead of me. How wrong I was. The exam, as you all know, is not just a shear test of technical skills but of determination and willingness, which to many is much harder than the technical aspect itself. The ability to dust yourself off time and time again after you fall and jump back into things is no easy task. It takes a certain willpower and dedication. However, with the support of my family and INE, the long journey to the top of this mountain has been completed. And while this chapter is coming to a closing, I ready myself for the next conquest and look forward to continuing my education with the great people at INE. Thanks again for everything.
