Better late than never? // Sometimes life happens and things don’t go according to plan. You may hit a bump in the road that will make you go one step forward, two steps back. Even if things seem difficult and you just want to quit, don’t forget the whole reason why you even started. For me, that reason was to fulfill a self-made promise: Finish school, no matter how long it takes.
Looking back, I’ll admit that I used to feel inferior because it has taken me so long to complete my degree. Fortunately enough, everyone has a different timeline. This journey has taught me the true definition of motivation.
If I could give anyone advice, it would be to never give up. Growth is not linear. Don’t be afraid of failure, as it does not define you. Surround yourself around those who encourage you and give back by encouraging others along the way.
After all the blood, sweat, and tears (mainly tears), I’m proud to say that in a few short weeks I’ll be a first generation college graduate!
