Giving my grandparents something to be proud of means the world to me. Life can be filled with so much disappointment but moments as glorious as graduation are celebrated by friends, family and everyone who my grandmother comes in contact with. When I graduated from undergrad, she told me that she was just so happy to be standing there watching me walk across the stage. She told me how she believed in me but she couldn’t conceive how it would work out because we didn’t have the tuition every single semester. Seeing the end result was a pure miracle to her.
As I prepare for this second moment of glory, I thank her for her prayers, encouragement and for believing and conceiving it. This JD isn’t just for me but for all of us. WE MADE IT.
