Hi again, guys! ❤️
I hope to find you well. I have missed you.
As promised, I am back from my one-and-a-half-month exam hiatus. These last three months of my life could be described as a ride on a rollercoaster with its peaks and valleys.
In hindsight, I am surprised by how I made it. I applied to university, sat for IB mock exams, read academic texts about Education Studies, Social Policy and Sociology, wrote a personal statement for the first time in my life, translated essays and books from Spanish to English and vice versa under the pressure of time (the reason behind this is a long story), sat for the official IB exams (which ended last Thursday) and in the meanwhile, I studied and sat for exams on a total of 15 subjects at school. I will be honest with you. It was not easy at all and I must admit that there were certain times during which I was mentally and physically weak, even though I did my best to avoid those situations. But believe me, there is always light awaiting you at the end of the tunnel. Even at the end of the darkest tunnels. And, effort always pays off, just keep going. Take breaks, but never give up.
I would like to send a massive thank you to all the people who have helped me on the way. Family and friends, even from the other side of the world (and I am including you guys as well ❤️). Your support has been immense and I can’t even find the right words to thank you enough for it. Comments, messages, calls and letters. Support, inspiration, advice and help that is absolutely invaluable. I was even moved quite a few times.
Thank you for spreading a smile on my smile when there were tears in my eyes. Thank you for giving me your hand, when I was slowly falling apart. And thank you for believing in me.
Remember no dreams are too big, if you believe in yourself and keep working towards them. You are capable of so much!
I believe in you and so should you believe in yourself. If I can ever be of any help, I will always be here for you, the same way that you were here for me :’) I love you and I always will x
