Guys...y’all know how hard I worked. You’ve seen my story posts at 3am to 8am of my all-nighters. I finally got my bachelors of cell bio and neuroscience. Starting at Bergen Community College I knew my end goal was Rutgers and I accomplished it. All the sacrifices, all the major life changes I’ve made, along with a lot of things pulling me down but I persevered. To be told many times to give up and do social work, to be given a side eye about my last name, and to finally prove everyone wrong feels so amazing. I pushed harder than I ever have in my life for something I’ve wanted so much.
@unwrittenkitten , your support while overseas has given me life. You talked me through anxiety attacks and encouraged me during the years to be the best I could be. To know that my best friend, almost family, was watching the livestream of my walk while deployed just makes me even more excited for you to return and to give you a big hug. Thank you for texting me while I was having a meltdown before I marched out, and calls, and texts and everything this morning leading up to my moment. Without you being there for me I don’t know how smoothly and composed this would have gone. You’ve been one of my #1 fans ever since high school and I’ll always be grateful for the love you’ve given and shown me all these years.
Next journey is grad school and getting my white coat. ¡Pa’lante...SIEMPRE PA’LANTE!
