Heyyyyy! It has been a crazy few months for me all leading up to the end of my college experience….for those of you who have been following “The Angielala Experience” since the beginning, you know that I started attending Berkeley College around the same time I launched the site. I can finally say that I have come to the end of the road and in a month, I will be officially done with school and will have earned my Bachelor’s degree in marketing! I am beyond elated! Since I am only taking 2 classes this quarter, I was able to walk in the graduation ceremony with all of my “awards” (my Alpha Sigma Lambda and Mu Kappa Tau sashes and my Honors Program cord) and won a special Honors Scholar award last month. On Friday, I will be joining yet another honor society, this one being the NJCBAAHS (New Jersey Collegiate Business Administration Association Honor Society) I have been very blessed and thankful of all of these awards and the opportunities they will bring in my life. It amazes me because if anyone would have told me 3 years ago that I would be able to live out my dreams of creating a place where people can come to connect, share their experiences and be uplifted AND maintain a 4.0 GPA while attending college full time, I would not have believed them. God always has a bigger plan for you than you can have for yourself and I know that we can all try to write the book that is our lives to a T but there will always be unexpected twists and turns that will throw you off but making the best of it and learning from it is what makes an amazing story.
I will be 27 years old in exactly 30 days from now(crazy right!) and I feel that every 5 years ever since I was born, a new chapter has begun. Since the age of 25,I have been writing the 5th chapter of my life and this 27th year is my halfway point. I feel that I have so much more to give to the world and finishing up school and heading out into the workplace to gain experience that will help me achieve my ultimate goals is my main focus. When my story is done, I hope that I will be able to look at all of the “pages” and say that I gave it everything I had. As your are writing the pages in your life story, make sure you keep that in mind as well;)
