Well... I'M A COLLEGE GRADUATE!!!!!! Yesterday I received my diploma to confirm my Bachelor of Science in Public Communication and minor in Applied Design. Graduation was beautiful and I felt so incredibly HAPPY the entire time. College was a learning experience full of many ups, but also, a lot of downs. At times I struggled with classwork, being away from home, hardships with friends, self-esteem, balancing my social life and other young adult problems. But by God's grace, I was sitting at commencement and could honestly only seem to think about all the JOYOUS memories that fill my heart.
I couldn't have asked for a better undergrad experience. UVM is the most MAGICAL school and I feel so blessed to have had this opportunity and education. The Huffington Post reported that UVM rates among The 10 Best Places to Go to College. Unigo says, "Students at UVM are unanimous in their love of their school, the town, and the state of Vermont," noting also that UVM "has one of the most breath-taking backdrops of any college." And it's all absolutely true. I think I could ramble on about my friends, professors, classes, stunning autumns, harsh winters, hopeful springs, glorious summers, hilarious late nights out, sorority sisters, delicious Burlington restaurants, internships, bottles of Andre, Lake Champlain sunsets, scoops of Ben & Jerry's, etc, etc. I am just so thankful. It's been hard to say bye to everyone, but I know I'll be back to visit and will always keep in touch. Now it's time to get back to California and start this new chapter of my life! THANK YOU ALL for following along on my east coast adventure. I'm excited to see where I end up next! xxxx
