Dear NYU ,
On April 14, 2014, I received your acceptance letter and was congratulated into the most amazing program that would change my life. A month later you informed me that you would help me with my tuition by granting me the CCTOP scholarship, Herbert Weiner scholarship & Academic Achievement Scholarship for the hard work I put in and the potential you saw in me. With also the help of my parents I was able to attend your school and I am so grateful for it. I am blessed. I had many ups and downs in the program. I always got excellent grades and I worked my butt off but to get where I am, I didn't involve myself in gatherings, events, things that weren't convenient and I eliminated any bad energy around me. I would be stressed, study long hours, wrote countless papers, sacrificed sleep and had some nervous breakdowns here and there. 😭
Fast forward 3 years and I'm sadly leaving you to start my new Journey and pursue my AUD. I am so thankful for Dr. Kelly Bridges, the CSD staff, long life friends I made and all the things I learned because of you. I learned so many languages, i dissected and analyzed cadavers, I learned so much in Neuroanatomy and physiology , countless science courses and you helped me create my lifetime project which is ASL MAKEUP TUTORIALS AND AWARENESS ON DEAF CULTURE!
I honestly cannot fathom having to leave you but with all that you have taught me, you also taught me to be strong and have that violet pride. Wherever I go I shall influence the world with my violet pride. Never discredit education because it is something that will shape you and also push you to make changes. Lastly , I would like to thank one amazing professor that once told me, Do something amazing today because, that is why you were born! I will always do that I promise you! With that being said, I once again thank you for everything NYU!
