I finally did it! I graduated from Columbia University with a Masters of Science in Community Health Education! I didn’t even imagine getting into an ivy league institution and yet here I am walking across the stage for my diploma! Over the last few years, I have been doing so many things over the last few years that I have completely overlooked my own accomplishments and am beside myself that I completed this task. Only four percent of Latinas in the United States graduate with a graduate degree and I am filled with pride to say I am part of that growing statistic. You all have been following my journey in graduate school and supporting me through my late nights and extensive paper writing. I just wanted to extend a massive thank you for your warmth, love, support, and encouragement. Thank you for believing in me even if we don’t even know each other in person! Of course, in true blogger form, I had to do a quick get ready with me video to commemorate and capture this special day. I’ve also added some clips of my graduation including my very proud mother cheering me on in the background!
