I am Kodi Maki, and welcome to my ePortfolio. Here you will find my achievements, goals and past experiences in my life. Feel free to look through this ePortfolio, and please enjoy!

Mission, Vision and value statements

Mission:

  • I am a humble, and selfless person who seeks loyalty, and respect. Through honesty, and integrity, as well as my hands on abilities, I seek to serve my community in the best way I can.

Vision:

  • I live my life according to my religious beliefs, I will never do anything I know to be wrong, and I always try to put everyone else’s needs, and concerns above my own.

Values:

  • I am honest, loyal, and true. I know what is right, and what is wrong. I am always trying to be the best person I can be, not only for myself, but for everyone.

Goals

Personal goals: I am married to the woman of my dreams, and I need to be able to give my future family the life they deserve, and it has always been my dream to always be there for them.

I want to continue excelling in my music and release another guitar album by January 1, 2020.

I want to be able to help my mother and father accomplish their goals.

Educational: I want to graduate from the Criminal Justice-Policing Diploma program and receive my diploma by April 2016.

I want to continue to receive education in the policing field and learn things I would never be able to learn in a classroom.

Professional: I want to gain employment in the public safety field and serve the community in which I live.

After retirement I would like to open a hobby shop, and continue to build, and fly radio controlled planes, drones, and helicopters.
