After many years of hard work and some years of slacking, I have officially finished my degree! What a long, strange trip it has been. I was to be bare foot and pregnant the rest of my life when I found out I was pregnant at 16. Life was supposed to end. The principal at my high school told me that I didn't deserve to go to his school. The co-op teacher told me that the only school I should go to was Horizon (alternative school) because that's the best I would ever become. Now, I have finished with a Bachelor's in Marketing! WOOHOO!!!! I started in 1999 and changed majors 3 different times. These were not easy changes but drastic changes. So, this nursing student is now a wannabe sales and marketing lady who would love a chance to get her foot in the door. I am waiting for business affairs to make sure that I don't owe any money but with financial aid that shouldn't be a problem and then I have to wait six to eight weeks to actually get the hard copy of the diploma. The only downside is that they only hold one commencement a year and that is in October! Still, anyone who faces adversity can make it through anything as long as they put their mind into it!
