It’s hard to believe that this journey is coming to an end. It wasn’t that long ago that I came into the open house event and met Dr. Zamora, Kelly and her sweet mother. I knew that the program was going to be a good fit for me, but I did not know that I would make so many wonderful acquaintances over the journey.
From my first class with Professor Sisler, I knew that my colleagues were going to become a special part of the entire experience. We all had something unique to offer one another. It’s easy to say that I’ve learned so much from each of you. I’m sure our journey together is not at an end. It has only began.
We all faced our own challenges when the impact of COVID-19 hit us. For me, the transition to an online learning environment was difficult. Especially while trying to get through Dr. Nelsons Methodologies course. I think you all can agree with me on that one. Academically, it was the hardest course for me throughout the program. The thesis work took the most out of me emotionally and physically. However, I can now look at this work as one of my greatest accomplishments.
Looking into my future, I don’t know what will come of it. But I can say that I have applied for a EdD program at Monmouth University. Not only do I want to make a change in how people view writing as a tool, I also want to help make a change in our academic communities. Hopefully I will be accepted into the program. For now, I wish all of you the best in your futures, and I hope that we can all stay in touch.
