On Graduating: A Master’s From Brown University.

It happened…

I graduated from Brown!

These past two years in graduate school have been incredibly beautiful, painful, yet fulfilling.

To be completely honest with you, there were days where I didn’t think I would make it. There were some tough days that felt like graduating wasn’t possible. It wasn’t the course work in grad school that was the toughest, it was finding the time to do the things that made me feel like myself. It was reminding myself that I still had friends rooting for me. It was feeling the Impostor Syndrome and wondering what a girl like me was doing at an Ivy league. It took me some time to get over a lot of my insecurities. I later realized that I am so capable, and Brown was such a beautiful place with wonderfully supportive faculty and staff. A lot (ALL) of the insecurities I faced were of my own creation.

I really can’t thank you enough for going through this grad school experience with me. I feel indebted to you and all my loved ones for sticking through me as I was able to graduate!

I have more exciting news — I’m currently writing my first book! Stay tuned and subscribe to the blog as you’ll be the first to hear deets. I am pouring my heart into my first book and sharing so much of who I am and struggles I’ve gone through. I can’t wait for you to get it!
