I was 0.01 away from a 3.9 to graduate with Summa Cum Laude but I'll settle for Magna Cum Laude 🏅and can we talk about how much Khang enjoys being the shameless/obnoxious but overly supportive boyfriend? (Swipe left)
I can't begin to tell you guys how satisfying it is to see hard work amount to something. At one point in my higher education, I was so mentally unstable I couldn't even picture graduating not to mention graduating with honors. I owe a lot to the College of Communications. I fell in love with my studies, and without a doubt that this major has changed me for the better. I remember going to Starbucks one time; I looked inside and saw A LOT of people. My social anxiety was so bad then. I couldn't move, sat in my car for 10 mins, and just cried. People and interaction terrified me. Sounds bizarre, but that was my reality. I slowly learned more about communication theory, research, and application. Hell-- I became an HCOM 100: Intro to Communication teacher and got a taste of what it's like to be a professor as an undergrad. Needless to say, education is a huge part of my identity and I can't imagine a life where I can't pursue knowledge about the world around me. I know you're all tired of sending congrats and seeing my grad photos, but tomorrow-- I will be the 1st in my family to graduate college. I'm sure my Asian family will appreciate the "with honors" part.
