Chapman50 Mentor, Mike Matuz '07 mentors MBA Student, Marty O'Connor

Our lives are characterized by challenges, choices and outcomes. I firmly believe that the challenges or adversities that we face can be used to propel us forward in ways we could not have imagined.

In 2012, I suffered a spinal cord injury that left me paralyzed from the shoulders down. From that point on, I have been on a relentless pursuit of professional development and self-improvement. In pursuing my MBA, I have found that this behavior is a necessity for businesses and organizations as well.
