Ya girl finally did it. 💪🏻 F I N A L L Y .
To get here from orientation in August of 2014 was no straight line path; it was probably the farthest from it. Nothing ever goes easily for me! If anyone who’s close to me and knows me personally notices, I don’t have every person who helped make this possible for me pictured because of a last minute medical emergency but everyone is ok.
I’ve lost family members, friends, friends from my cancer community, and parts of myself (quite literally 😂 ). But I’ve gained who I am and the real knowledge of who I want to be and do in this world. I’ve gained lifelong friends who I’m eternally grateful for. I’ve gained people who’ve helped change me, direct me, and help make me into this person of who I’m able to be. My amazing professors and friends made this all so worthwhile, as well as the great experience I’ve gained working in a lab over the years and leading clubs on campus. I’ve learned that the only obstacle in life is me telling myself that something isn’t possible. And as Audrey Hepburn says: nothing is impossible, the word itself says “I’m possible.” #sunynewpaltz #classof2019 #graduation #undergrad #bachelorspoilers #biology #deafstudies #spanish #neverthelessshepersisted
