I have so many emotions going through my head right now and when I speak about graduating I get emotional, because of so many reasons! I’m SO proud of myself that In between all the obstacles that college life threw at me while, I had a full time job, social life and working on my blog, I pushed through. I am TRULY thankful for my fiancé for supporting me throughout these years to hustle and get it done, my family was also a huge part of my success, I knew it my heart that I wanted to be a good example and role model for my siblings. Although I did have my moments of mental breakdowns where I would cry on the phone with my mom just because at times it was too much, where I was barely gonna make it in some classes but I pushed myself to go the extra mile and just get it done!
At certain points I thought I will never see that finish line, but we to ourselves have to motivate and find that voice that speaks to us, as I did. I’m so proud to be a first generation graduate. I owe it all to my drive as well, I knew that getting this degree I will prove to myself that ANYTHING you put your mind to do you can achieve. And I’m a firm believer in that the first thing is believing in yourself. Of course there are times where you ask yourself like will I? And the answer is YES! You can do anything you put your mind to do!
My hat reads “and the story goes on”... because this isn’t the end but just the beginning of all the triumphs I will have whether is in my career and life itself. I’m thankful that I made it this far and I hope that I made my parents proud. So whether it’s school, a job, an opportunity take it if that’s what YOU want to do! Take a leap of faith on yourself, if you believe you will, then it will!
