The day came and went just about as fast as it my time spent in grad school. On Sunday I graduated with my Masters of Science in Educational leadership. Through hard work and perserverance I was able to start and complete the task of graduate school.
I couldn't be more proud.
Long nights of reading, papers, research, presentations, coordinating study groups and childcare I now can add another degree to list.
The joy I felt walking across that stage is indescribable. Putting that graduate hood on I know I beamed with pride. While the day was surely about marveling in my accomplishments. I couldn't help but reflect on all the people that assisted me, encouraged me and stood by side as I went through this process. I am so grateful for my tribe. For without them I would not have been able to make this far. Seriously. My mom, best friends, cohort peers, c0-workers... all the people that i love made sure I never gave up.
Watching my daughter look up to me in amazement. Calling me beautiful. Telling me congratulations made all those sleepless nights worth it.
To all the mama's out there who are contemplating on going back to school. GO!.
Don't wait. Pull together your most reliable framily ( friend+family) and make it happen.
the road to the doctorate begins in about 3-4 years.
Im the mama of Marli Amor and Kingston Ase.
