I am so grateful to have received my my Masters in Comm Arts- Media Studies over the weekend. It was a really humbling experience to see this take place. In undergrad I failed so miserably in math 2-3 xs in a row that I got kicked out of college. It was so heartbreaking for my mother and I to see this take place. Especially for my mom, a single mother who migrated to the US from a small impoverished country, she felt as though her hopes and dreams ended. But God wasn’t done with me, I persevered and got reinstated into college. That took place with the help of my other great professors who saw potential in me and petitioned for my re-entrance. I’m glad I never gave up and quit. Now, I stand before you as a living testament that diligence, integrity and hard work pay off. If I can do it, you totally can too!
Never give up on your dreams. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this as it is really dear to my heart.
Truly, Rachel xoxo
