I graduate in less than 24 hours! These four years have been a roller coaster ride and I don’t even remember the half of it! The one thing I do remember is constantly wondering how life after college would be. I was so busy thinking about that that I didn’t get to fully enjoy the "college experience."
For the longest time I’ve felt I would never figure out what career path I would end up. Even when I kind of figured it out, I felt that school was getting in the way of my passion. I felt that I wasn’t able to truly focus on my craft and it almost became a burden.
I was nervous about what I was going to do after college. I thought I had to have everything figured out from living situation to a source of income. I realized weeks leading up to this point that, I can literally do whatever my heart desires. I can travel if I want to. I could go back to school if I want to . I could work ANYWHERE in the country or the world if I want to.
I’m fortunate enough to have both parents in my life supporting me emotionally, mentally, and financially! Im fortunate enough to have family in NY which makes my move from Florida a hell of a lot easier! Im fortunate enough to graduate with little to no debt and to have no major expenses. Which is absolutely amazing because when I do get a career, I will be doing whatever I plan on doing for the love of it, the experience, and the life lessons. NOT for the money.
I couldn’t have gotten this far without my wonderful God, my family, and my mentors. Because of them, my mindset has changed from "what am I going to do" to "I can do anything because I have nothing to lose."
College has been fun, but the world is waiting for me and I’m ready to enjoy the experiences of every opportunity that comes my way!
