‘Super dad’ graduates with master’s while working 3 jobs
For the past two years, one New Jersey dad successfully balanced three jobs, late-night studies and parenting his young son to graduate with a master’s degree. Now he’s inspiring others to do the same.
“My schedule was very demanding, from waking up between 5 a.m. to 6 a.m. and ensuring that my son was fed, his homework was completed… I probably didn’t go to bed until 12 a.m., maybe 1 a.m. every night, just to wake back up and do it all over again,” Desmond Durham told “Good Morning America.” “But I knew the dream was real,” he said.
Durham, 36, graduated from Montclair State University on May 23 with a master’s in arts and educational leadership. He was asked to deliver the commencement speech to the College of Education and Human Services and the College of Science and Mathematics, which has since been viewed over 12,600 times on YouTube.
