Ayyyeee… What’s Goodie Everyone. So I have something that I want to say. And I mean this from the bottom of my heart!
This year came in and it was and still is full of surprises. From where you started take a short trip back there. It was hard, difficult and unpredictable. Not knowing what was next you kept going. You followed the path, you traveled where you needed to be to get to this moment. The finish line of your goal and now you have come forward.
When I came to New York City 8 years ago, January 8,2013 I didn’t know where I was going or what was next. All I knew was that I came up here to have an opportunity to rise above poverty. Just a girl from Pittsburgh, PA just wanted to make it and acheive accomplishments and not be so ordinary!. I have been through hard times, too many to count, this time is hard, but I will make it.
This moment in your life is something to be PROUD of! You put your blood, sweat and tears into this moment! And even as your celebrating this moment, don’t forget to recognize that this is just one moment that will kick off more moments of acheivement to come!
Have love and faith! Have determination to do the right thing, serve your fellow man, Rise Above.
We will make it.
Congratulations to The Class of 2020!
