I type this message as the Drew 2023 CLA Commencement crowd is dispersing to residence halls outside my window, to pack up dorms! This morning was a fabulous celebration of our newest alumni’s accomplishments, and I loved cheering on my friends.
It’s a time to reflect back on my own graduation, which was exactly a year ago tomorrow. Life has been full of miracles and dreams come true since then . My aims for my career have shifted. In the place of what I had thought was going to be my future has been true happiness and purpose that I never thought I’d feel before. I am grateful for my current place in higher education and community engagement as a mentor, advisor, and cheerleader for young people. Over the next couple of months I will be taking steps to further my experience and education (wink wink) in this field. Thank you to everyone who has supported me on this journey!
During graduation season I am always reminded of the great gift of learning. See you all next month!
