Momma I Have made it! Yes, it’s official that your boy has graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Electronic Journalism and Arts. May 14th 2017, a day that will be forever be memorable for the rest of my life.
It’s only been a week and I am still high off from the excitement of graduating. I can’t believe that I am finally done!! Believe me when I tell you that I gained a good amount of pounds from that last couple months just trying to stay afloat in order to graduate. Looking back, food was literally my therapy but it was all worth it.
In all seriousness, I never imagined I would be the first one in my family among my siblings to get a degree. Growing up, my parents spent a lot of money on tutors and taking my siblings and I to some of the best schools in Kenya. It’s crazy how that I am finally able to showcase this achievement and letting them see all their hard work pay off.
School has never been my forte. I remember during my early middle school days I used to really struggle in school. Keeping it all the way real, I was the ‘dummy’ kid in class. I was always among the few with the lowest grades in my class. It got soo bad to the point I even had to repeat my 6th grade. I clearly remember my fifth grade teacher even once said that she never saw me making it in life.
I am not sure what the next step is but I am confident it will all work out in the end! As of now I just want to marinate in these new post Grad lifestyle. (before I get depressed why I have not gotten a job)
