Ryan is a Communications major at St. John's University and will graduate in 2014. While in high school in the Dallas/Fort Worth Texas area he started and co-owned the Wojo Brothers Lawn Service. Watching his entrepreneurial father and his father's friends taught Ryan much about persistence and customer service that he applied to his own business. Ryan now has started a new dream, writing the first novel in a trilogy that he has been planning for the past year. He sees the E-Scholars program as a way to harness his "get it done" approach to opportunities skills that will add to his success.
