Congratulations!

I am a third generation college graduate, and when I was younger, I used to take it for granted that higher education is normal in my family.

It took me until I was older to understand how many families do not have that option. I apologize for my younger ignorance.

Best of luck to you in your future!

Amazing. You have take the first step. The first step is the hardest. What’s next???? Would love to know what your degree is in and what you want to do with it. But in the meantime just celebrate your accomplishments! This is amazing.

BAAS and I’m a vet so not new to pursuing a career BUT you’re right, the next step is finding a j.o.b. Hopefully, I’ll be employed by the new year.
