LV REVIEW JOURNAL: Ho finds success in poker after college
Moments after the University of California, San Diego handed Maria Ho a diploma in 2005, she knew her career goals were destined for a job that required skills beyond her degree in communications.
Ho participated in the college's graduation ceremonies with her classmates. Afterward, she jumped on a plane to Las Vegas to take a seat at the World Series of Poker.
"I decided right then I was going to be a professional poker player, and I never looked back," Ho said.
