Motivational Monday|I’m Off to Grad School!

I heavily apologize for my lack of presence. I legitimately overbooked my life this past school year; but, I am back with fantastic things to share with the world!

As some of you know from following my other social media, not only did I graduate from my undergraduate institution,  I got accepted to an MPH (Master’s of Public Health) program and I will be continuing my studies this fall. On top of that I also received a graduate assistantship position which will cover my tuition and provide me with a stipend. 

I am beyond excited for this next journey because I was honestly so worried about what was ahead of me after determining I was not ready for medical school immediately after this undergrad work. I feel so blessed to have all this transitional support as well!

Currently I’m still working at my Alma mater, but I already bought a car (my very first big purchase!) and secured an apartment (again, a first!), so that is all set. I am working towards getting furnishings and such now, but I believe it will all fall into place in due time, so I’m trying not to worry.

If you look back over some of my old posts and witness how much I have grown and how much I have overcome, you will understand just how exciting this is for me and my supporters. Though I may not be where I thought I would be at this point, where I am is a very good place to be. If you’re feeling in a funk and you don’t necessarily feel as though you’re going to make it, just remember that it takes time to get anywhere. Don’t compare yourself to others because everyone’s journey will be different. Just enjoy your journey for what it is… road blocks, detours, and all.
