My St. Thomas Aquinas College graduation is in ten days. I’m getting very excited. We are getting the dinner list confirmed, making dinner reservations. And I am doing the girly preparations like choosing a graduation dress and hairstyle.
I always thought that attaining a Bachelor degree was so far off and impossible to do. When I first started St. Thomas Aquinas College, my grandfather had just died. I remember asking myself if I should drop out and get a job to support my grandmother and I.
I’ll never forget how my grandmother responded to that question. She said, “No. He would want you to finish school.”
And so I did. On May 12, 2017, I will graduate with a BS in psychology from St. Thomas Aquinas College. I am really excited as the semester ends and I have time to relax.
Congratulations to the Classes of 2017
