Congratulations to my roommate and friend, Paul Yao. He came to the U.S. from Cote d'Ivoire in 2002 to work on a college degree, and on December 16 he graduated from Georgia State University. Not only did he get his business degree, he also graduated with honors. Not bad for someone who barely spoke English when he came here. Tres bien!
