What a way to start the week.
I can say that last week was, to say the least, challenging. I had a lot to deal with and my main thing was to push to the end. I wanted to end the week being able to say that I didn’t give up.
And boy did it pay off!
I was able to pick up my degree on Monday from my college! It was a breath of fresh air when I got the email that it was ready and that I could come get it from the office. I worked my butt off for my college degree after starting out my college career on rocky terms. I got my Bachelors’ of Technology in Communications Design and I’m so proud to tell that to anyone who will listen.
Maybe 2 hours after picking up my degree, I also received the notification that made it into the TechHire Cohort!
That will probably always be my favorite email from Leila (but I like all of the emails Leila sends).
Honestly, in that moment when I was looking at the acceptance email and holding my degree in my hand, I felt motived and energized. I felt like I was ready to put in the work to do anything and see what the results would be.
Feels like I’m ready for anything.
