I am so proud to say that I am now an Alumna of Southern New Hampshire University. Last Saturday, I graduated Summa Cum Laude with my Bachelors Degree in Communications, Public Relations. Can someone call Olivia Pope to see if she's hiring? I'm ready to be a gladiator!
After finishing high school, I attended community college to obtain my Associate's Degree in Marketing. Upon completion, I knew that I wanted to obtain my BA. Due to life and challenging circumstances, it always seemed like a dream. In 2010 I decided that I wanted to give college another try. However, after completing my first term, i knew that the university and program I had chosen was not for me. I ended up withdrawing. This left me with feelings of failure and disappointment. Deep down I thought that I would never be able to complete my BA.
Fast forward to 2014 and I decided to give college one last shot. I came across SNHU and instantly fell in love with my program, and advisors. The support I received was continuous and overwhelming. I've spent the past two years attending both work and school full time. I would've never thought in a million years that I would've created an awesome blog in the process. I've had doors and opportunities opened for me that have seemed unimaginable.
I experienced many emotional breakdowns throughout my journey. There were days when I doubted myself, and if I could press on. However, it was all worth it. I am so thankful for my family and dear friends that have supported me along the way.
For all my fellow dreamers and creatives NEVER give up on your dreams. What may seem to be impossible, might not be impossible after all. Always remember to celebrate your accomplishments, and don't forget to dab on all your haters! Congratulations to the Class of 2016!!
