@northeastern class of 2016 *It took me longer*
Please hear my story,
I'm honored to be able to see it, touch it, and with the help of technology share this moment with you all (my family, my friends, my colleagues, my role models, and whoever this may reach in a positive way). It took me nearly a year after graduation, on a payment plan, to pay off the remaining balance to release a hold on my final transcripts & physical diploma/degree. Northeastern University honored me on #nationalstudentathleteday 13 years ago and even though I didn't know much about the school at the time it was a glimpse of what involvement in sports could do for my life. As I pushed through the challenges of life and completed my undergraduate degree from @officialsouthernmiss and gained work experience, I dared to challenge it again to get a Master's or Professional degree and it was my chance to make good on a "what if". I'm so glad that I know what it's like to achieve in a "what if" space & I can tell you that it feels good. Let that be a 🔑 to all who are reading this: you need to make a phone call, or write the inquiry or email or letter about your what if (i.e. school opportunity, job opportunity, service opportunity, etc.). 🔑🔑As I navigate my 2017, I keep these things in mind: favor, education, and experience. Favor for opportunities & solutions. Educational milestones achieved. Experience in serving people and helping others excel in their vision. These things keep me balanced as I build a foundation for my greater works of service to come in life & I love to use these experiences to encourage others daily.
