I did it! I finally graduated with my M.B.A.!
Those close to me would tell you that I really wasn’t overly excited about graduation itself; but I can now say I’m incredibly thankful I decided to be part of the festivities. I got to spend time with both of my parents, I got to watch the entire ceremony from the front row, and I got to cheer for and be cheered on by my wonderful, amazing students (to the point that the president of the university commented “you have quite a fan club” as he was handing me my diploma 🙂 )
I’m deeply thankful to everyone who has come along on this journey the past two and a half years: my friends and family for encouraging me and yes, listening to me whine a lot. My co-workers for helping me out when I had a hard time balancing being an employee and a student. And Capital University for an experience that will follow me the rest of my life.
What are you grateful for this week??
