Graduation season is in the air as thousands of students, whether they are finishing high school or college, are about to walk across the stage and receive their diploma/degree; I am one of them–graduating from Sacramento City College with my associate of arts in Communication Studies.
Imagine, the hard work it took for you to get to where you are today, a graduate. The blood, sweat, and tears it took for you to get to that point in time where you are dressed in that cap and gown and ready to take on that next chapter in your life. I know the feeling. When so many obstacles and challenges came in the way of achieving my goal, I still kept pushing on and asked God to give me the strength I needed to get through all of those classes I was taking. Yes, it was hard, but I knew that once I achieved my goal to graduate then every single struggle I faced was all worth it to prepare me to get to that Day.
For every student graduating this season, enjoy your special day as you walk that stage with your head held high and a smile on your face knowing what it took you to get to where you are today. As you receive your diploma, know that your hard work pays off in the end. Celebrate your achievement because you deserve it!
