Guys I finally made it!!! I am graduating with my B.A in Sociology. This has been a long but well earned journey not only for myself but for my family as well and making them proud. I remember when I transferred to CSUN two years ago feeling butterflies in my stomach and not knowing what to expect. Now I’m here, with a degree and starting a new chapter in my life.
I am very excited for all new things to come, the possibilities are endless and I am also proud of myself for pushing through and never giving up. I’ve thought about this moment since I was a young girl and thinking of who I wanted to be in life. I have learned that it’s okay not to have all of the answers at once but the determination is what counts. I have never given up and I have to thank my family for that because they have always taught me continue pushing no matter what obstacles come my way.
My experience at CSUN will be something that I will carry on with me for the rest of my life and to all my peers and professors, thank you! Each class has been able to let me see the world in a whole new way. Everything I did has been worth it and as many may know, it takes long nights, little sleep and tons of stress to get the job done. I want to say to anyone out there going to school, keep pushing and remind yourself of your goals and dreams!
So cheers to the class of 2017 and making the change we want to see in the world.
