The time has finally arrived. That line that once seemed so far from here is now here. I was scrolling through my thesis folder in my google drive and just amazed at the amount of work the filled it. I remember when I first made that folder and only a few documents sat in there, and now there is a host of work.
I’m finally done with my project! And it is a project that I so extremely proud and passionate of! I cannot wait to continue the next steps and do the work to get my project into the hands of young women of color who need it. This has been a wonderful experience and I’ve learned so much along the way.
Words cannot describe how I feel in this moment. This moment where I’m celebrating my accomplishments, reflecting on my journey, thinking about the future, is one I will never forget. And I know I will never forget the people I have met along this journey. From my wonderfully brilliant peers, my amazing professors and the knowledge they shared with me, to the most amazing, wise, patient, kind, intelligent woman I know, my director Dr. Zamora. I thank you all for being apart of my journey and I wish you all nothing but luck and love on yours!!
I cant believe the journey has all but come to an end. While I still have some work to do on my thesis, I am happy with the way that it’s is turning out. As all of you are aware at this point, I am a bit guarded and protective over my work, especially when it is something that is creative. It took my a while to get my footing and to get in the groove on this project, but as I have gone back to read where my progress stands, I am really excited to share it with Dr. Zamora and the rest of my classmates, as they have all been around to support me from the inception of not only this project, but my time in the program as well. Now, it’s just about finishing what is infront of me and moving on to bigger and better things, as I’m sure is the case for all of us. Hang in there guys, it’s the last week!
