I have never in my life been more proud of these 3 pieces of paper. These pieces of paper represent; fear, determination, doubt, joy, frustration, and success. .
4 years ago I received an email and letter I never truly believed was possible, I had been accepted into my dream school and program! I was about to take the next steps in continuing my journey to becoming a musician and music educator.

Fast forward through the good days and the ones that make you feel like giving up, celebratory successes and breakthroughs, and times that challenge you to your core. The road was not always easy but my path was always clear. .
I am so proud to say that I have officially completed both my Bachelor's of Music, but also my Bachelor's of Education. I am so excited for what my future holds and the continuation of my journey into teaching. Thank you to everyone who has shared and supported me on this journey so far, it means the world to have you by my side. . . . . . . . . .

Today I crossed the stage and received my Bachelor of Arts diploma. The journey of completing my degree has been long, tough, and at times full of tears. Without God and my family by side this day would have not been possible. I have had people question my choice of majoring in Hispanic studies asking questions and telling me things like, “Well, you already speak Spanish” “What could you possibly do with that degree?” “Why has it taken it you so long?” etc. These negative attitudes resonated with me during my last two years at UBC and although I could have easily let them decide the course of my future by giving up and quitting, I decided the opposite. Instead, I used these unwanted opinions as my motivation and today, I am very blessed and privileged to say that I finished! This means more to me than most people, as a first generation latina Canadian this is not only for me, my parents, and my family but, for the Latinx, immigrant, and minority community. It is for past generations who struggled to make this moment in my life a reality, for those who continue to push towards their dreams, and for the new generation who will hear and learn from our stories. Although, receiving an education will never define who I am it has taught me lessons that I will carry with me forever and I am so blessed and thankful to have had this opportunity and I will never take it for granted. It will provide me with the tools and opportunities to support other Latinxs, immigrants, and minorities as they pursue higher education. I know I am not required to write this long of a post but this moment has been a chance to reflect on the whole process. I’m proud of myself and believe many others should have this opportunity as well. Gracias mi gente, we are beautiful y si se puede! #UBCgrad #IamUBC #TuumEst #FirstGeneration #LatinxGrads

thanks to everyone that got me here. now onwards to attaining my BEd 😊 #ubcgrad #iamubc

Suddenly hitting me that it's my graduation tomorrow and I won't be able to be there for it. One night in the hospital was enough to realise how silly I was to stress out so much about graduating "on time". Despite the fact that I will be missing out on a very important day, I am extremely grateful of everything that has happened in the past 2 weeks. It has given me the opportunity to reflect on the things that truly matter to me and an opportunity to relax and take a break from life. Long and cheesy post but wanted to remind everyone to take good care of your bodies and that GPA may last forever but it's not everything. Congratulations to the kin grad class of 2018, we made it! 🎓 #graduation #ubckin #iamubc

today I experienced a great loss. I said goodbye to the woman who served as my navigator and my anchor through a rigorous outpatient therapy at Vancouver General Hospital, where I’ve been receiving treatment for the past eleven months. It marks an accomplishment on my part, a dedication to myself, my body, and my mind. I kept putting myself first, getting myself to the hard appointments and pushing through the learning and the growing pains.

Karen was a constant and exuberant lighthouse in my healing. She was Star Trek metaphors in suicidal crisis, wildly flailing hands illustrating her explanation of my experiences. She was the words that taught me the language of my pain. She was the unscrambled sentences, the latch clicking into place, the understanding dawning on me in a new way at every appointment. She was tough, when I didn’t use my skills or engaged in ineffective behaviour. She did not shy away from reminding me of the seriousness of this disorder, of everything I have to lose, of the reality of inpatient admission. At my last appointment, I cried because she was describing the Dalai Lama wielding a gun to protect his pigeons, as she reminded me that even the wisest of minds succumbs to emotion. .

I’m not sure what this year would have looked like without her. I include a screenshot of my transcript because I maintained my A average at UBC despite two severe episodes and chronic symptoms. Despite the upheaval of a flood and the stress of beginning my honours program and learning how to conduct clinical interviews. I thrived despite the conditions, despite the odds. .

Much of DBT is hard fucking work. It is rough and challenging and easy to quit. Today I took the emotion dysregulation screener that I completed before my admission to the program, and despite my still elevated score, I no longer meet criteria for admission.

Karen reminded me that loss is a skill. She told me I will have to practice losing her, losing well and skillfully. When we become masters of loss, we are able to love fearlessly.

FINALLY!!! #iamubc

Have you checked out the MOA this summer? Now showing “Arts of Resistance: Politics and the Past in Latin America” – an exhibition that illustrates how communities in Latin America use traditional or historical art forms to express contemporary political realities. #iamubc
