Convocation Day

What joy to have been able to cross the stage this week and make my doctoral degree official. When I was given the card to designate the order I would cross the stage, I had red ink in the top corner to note of ‘First Phd’ to note that I would be the first to cross the stage. But to me it also signified that I was being recognized for being the first in my family to also go onto graduate studies and get my PhD. Thanks to my committee and all the people who have cheered me on through this journey!
