I can finally say I’M DONE! 🏽 officially graduated.. & now I feel so much relief. College really taught me a lot about myself. In these last 2 years I’ve been through it all & I mean it allllll. Going from being a stay at home mom with a one year old to a full time college student was a struggle, being away from my baby every day broke my heart... people don’t realize school was really my home away from home. I spent more time with with my classmates than I did my own family. It was definitely an emotional roller coaster. Breakups, makeups, dealing with health issues, the countless meltdowns, car troubles, you name it. even suffering 2 miscarriages.. not everyone really knows how hard it was for me to get to where I am today. Some just think of it as “a degree” but it’s so much more than that to me. I worked my ASS off, literally. None of this came easy to me. All the late nights staying up studying & cramming.. all the tears, there were days I would just lay in bed & just wanna give up.. but by the grace of god & the endless support from my family & friends I pulled through. I know now that I can really conquer anything, Not only as a mother but as an intellectual. I can never thank the people who supported me enough. my mom, my siblings Isaac & Lee, my closest friends Mariyah, Miriam, & America who pushed me & never let me give up on myself. & to Ray, the love of my life, who helped me through it all mentally & financially always taking care of me. And to the friends in school I’ve made along the way, the unbreakable bonds we share & now you’ll always be a part of my life. Thank you to anyone who cheered me on & believed in me even when I didn’t believe in my damn self.
They say “it takes a village” & believe me when i say it’s true. I could’ve never gotten through this without my support system. But I did it, I really did it & i’m so proud of myself. God has a great plan for me & I cant wait to see to what he has in store for me. the journey doesn’t stop here, this is only the beginning..
