Well I finally did it! I graduated from college with a bachelors in multimedia journalism. I couldn’t be happier and more excited. I have been working many years for this (I should have a freaking PHD by now) but despite this long journey, I feel like I have learned and grown so much as a person and as an adult. Although the main reason for attending college is to gain specific knowledge we can take into our careers, I firmly believe one can never be done learning. For those of you who say you don’t need college to get a job and make money, that’s very true, but the knowledge and experience you gain in college does not compare to your high school years or even the years after. At Lehman College I have been able to participate in activities that gave me hands on experience in journalism. Photojournalism class, writing and taking photos for The Bronx Journal, as well as creating my own news broadcast segment for Inside Lehman where I wrote my own script (with guidance of course from a wonderful professor, Tom O’Hanlon) and was the anchor, all for the first time. I’ve also had the pleasure of having some great professors whose kind words of encouragement confirmed to me that I’m moving in the right direction. I take these experiences and everything I have learned over the years with me now into creating a career for myself. It’s been a long and hard road. I want to thank all my professors for all their hard work and the kindness they have showed me over these last two years. I congratulate everyone from all over, who have graduated this year. We made it! As corny as it sounds, we absolutely are the future. Let’s go out into this worlod and change it for the better!
