In four days I will be a college graduate holding a BS in Elementary Education with a teaching certificate on the way.
Over the course of the last four years I came through a very rough bout of clinical depression, became engaged, planned a wedding, got married, took a semester off, became pregnant, had the most adorable little boy ever, survived student teaching, and am still graduating ON TIME with a 3.8991 GPA (less than a tenth of a point short of the highest university honors – darn!). I will be graduating with a degree that takes a lot of dedication and hard work to complete in just four years – without everything else added in.
NEVER let anyone tell you that you can’t do something. With enough faith, determination, and support you can do anything. Had you told me that 9 months ago I wouldn’t have believed you. But here I am. If I can do it, so can you.
