After Five and half years I finally did it. Words can't describe how happy I feel. I accomplished something I never would of done. I graduated not with one Degree but three, Two Associates and my Bachelors of technology in construction management. I had to take the hardest route to make it to this day. I couldn't of done it without the support of my family, friends, and of course my Hermanos. I have so much love zeta but it's time for grandpa to step down I leave zeta to the new generation. #thezoo#classof2018#zetachapter
Today I completed an important milestone in my life: I graduated from UCF with my B.S. in Accounting. It wasn’t always easy, but I made it. I met so many amazing and helpful people along the way. For all of those people who were there for me during my college years, even if you couldn’t make it or we don’t talk as much anymore, thank you. I wouldn’t be where I am today without you.
And of course I owe everything to my loving parents who supported me every step of the way. I love you mom and dad ❤️ Now I must look forward to see what lies ahead in my future! (Also expect a few more graduation related posts in the near future). #graduation#undergrad#UCF#classof2018#accounting#accountingmajor#commencement#family#friends#finally#orlando#bachelorsdegree#college#florida#ucfknights
Thanking God I’m finished. It wouldn’t even be right if I didn’t cut up 1 last time before I got out of there. Shoutout to all the love that was shown today. Shoutout to the official end of another chapter in my life. #NSUGraduate#Classof2018 I finally did it y’all. So proud of myself. More posts coming soon. 👨🏾🎓🎓🙌🏾
3.5 years. 130 credits. 2.9 GPA. Hours of homework, studying and tests, which all paid off to culminate in one Bachelor’s of Science in Exercise Science with a minor in Psychology. I’m so grateful for everyone who has helped me along the way, but especially my parents who supported me through all of my trials and struggles to this moment. I don’t know what’s next, but I can’t wait to find out! 💙💛 #NAUGrad#classof2018
Beyond proud & honored to have been able to witness this moment today❤️. Congratulations to my cousin, @youngogeezus_ I know there is nothing but greatness in store for you 🙌🏾. You have all the tools, now it’s time to get to work. 👨🏾🎓🎉 #classof2018#familyfirst#criminaljustice
Tl;DR: I made my mom cry today.
My mom graduated from the SCC nursing program in 1999. At the time she was focused on feeding three children and being able to pay for the basics to make it through school and wasn't able to afford her own nursing pin from SCC and ended up never getting one, instead using a cub scout mom pin. I never new this until yesterday when she told me the story after my pinning. Today I graduated from NAU with my BSN and gave my stole of gratitude to my mom, with my pin from SCC. I figured she waited 20 years to get one, I can wait a while for a replacement. #nursing#scottsdalecommunitycollege#naugrad#classof2018#earnednotgiven
On Thin Ice? 😬❄️
The Golden Rule & One Way to Prevent Bingeing 🍧.
Here's one of the best bits of advice I've ever received & indeed used myself 👌🏻.
If you're struggling to eat 'clean' or can't be consistent with your eating, try being more flexible 👍🏻.
Often when we over restrict or try too hard, those are the times we end up knee deep in the cookie jar, ice cream tub or whatever you can get your hands on 👋🏻.
I call it the 80/20 rule & it's one many I look up to have taught me 🗣️.
It's essentially shooting for a large majority (i.e. 80%) of the time including nutrient dense foods (veggies & the like) with 20% of space for our favourite perhaps less 'healthy' efforts 🍕.
After all, who wants to eat only broccoli for the rest of their days? Not me or my clients. It's the first thing I teach them ✅.
Happy Snacking (guilt-free too 😉)
Congrats to my wonderful sister @ventiblonde for making it through college! I’m so proud of you! I know you’re like a complete adult now but we’ll always be the crazy kids we are around each other ❤️ #graduation#utknoxville#classof2018
Finally LSU Alumna!! Thank you Jesus!! 🙌🏾🙌🏾 Thank you to ALL my family & friends who embarked on this journey with me (especially the ones who helped put together last minute things for graduation 😅). I truly love & am grateful for y’all!! Also, thank you to all the Black women who congratulated me, it truly meant a lot! @lsu it’s been real!! 💜💛💜💛 #blackgirlmagic#blackgirlsgraduate#classof2018#geauxtigers
It’s complete!! I prayed and asked God what to put on my cap because I wanted to give honor where honor is due! Proverbs 19:21 “Many are the plans in a person’s heart but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” Exodus 20:12 “Honor your father and your mother...” Tomorrow is the day!!#classof2018#azusapacificuniversity#isthisreallyhappening#nofilter
Hoy salí del salón donde tuve el último examen de mi carrera y me percaté de lo bella que se ve la universidad en estos colores de otoño. Me percaté sobretodo de estos árboles porque me recuerdan a los Araguaneys que veía de pequeña, esas salpicaduras de color en los paisajes venezolanos. Al verlos sentí nostalgia y tristeza. Tristeza porque no pude estudiar en mi país, porque, al igual que muchos otros, me vi forzada a forjar un futuro en otros rincones del mundo, lejos de todo lo que conocía y amaba. Pero hoy no me arrepiento de nada porque sé que las cosas pasan como deben. No pude estudiar y crecer en mi país, pero es gracias a esa falta que hoy tengo, no sólo la esperanza, sino también la meta de utilizar este título (por el cual he sudado la gota gorda) tanto para sacar a nuestra Venezuela de esta amarga situación, como para ayudar a quienes se encuentran en situaciones similares y, con suerte, prevenir que se repita la historia en otras partes del mundo. Hoy dejo la universidad con el corazón lleno y con la esperanza de que en algún momento voy a regresar a nuestra hermosa tierra para verla florecer, tal como el Araguaney. Este título es por ti y para ti mi Venezuela 🇻🇪✨
With tears in my eyes and a heart full of joy... I SAY CONGRATULATIONS to @kaykelliejay on graduating today! You stuck it out, never gave up and now you’re reaping the benefits of all your hard work. I can’t wait to see you become the next President of these here United States (insider) 😂🎓
I’ve witnessed you overcome adversity and never give up on your dreams. It has all been worth it and I’m extremely proud of the man you are becoming. My younger bro if officially a college graduate‼️ ITS LIT🤑🎓🙌🏼😎 #classof2018#Educated#GodIsGood
One word to describe today? Surreal. 2.5 years, 30 hours of classes, and God only knows how many hours of studying, writing, and working pages long problems later, I finally achieved my Master’s degree. Thank you to all my friends and family who helped, encouraged, and supported me along the way! I love you and couldn’t have done it without you! 😸🎓 #ukgrad#classof2018
I have to give a shout out to this amazing hard working husband of mine who graduates as a manufacturing engineer today. 👨🎓 Even though he's a stubborn guy who didn't want to walk at graduation, I want him to know how proud of him I am for all his hard work! Way to go babe!! #classof2018#graduate#moreeducatedthanme#hesthebest#sosmart
Congratulations to our amazing liaison, @paolamaria96, for graduating today! We at KnightPAC wish you all the best in all your future endeavors and we will miss you so much! Go Knights, and Charge On! 🖤💛 #UCFKnights#KnightPAC#Classof2018#GoKnights
Y’all. I can’t believe this is actually happening. Not because I didn’t think my kid would graduate because she’s a rockstar. It’s because I can’t believe I have a 23 year old college graduate😂😂😂😂. I’m sooooooo proud of how hard my mini-me in lots of ways has worked! And I’m actually going to revive my baking phoenix from the ashes for one night only because she asked me to make cookies for her party❤️. I like to keep those wifey skills buried. #proudmom#mykidisgraduating#momlife#teenmombeforeitwascool#mykidisawesome#rockstar#ung#graduation#classof2018
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.

Long post- I walked into Anderson University over two years ago just to chat with a friend @jennikknowles, and I felt the most incredible sense of peace that I was exactly where I was supposed to be. I could feel God calling me to something, calling me to do something that would be extremely difficult. I felt Him calling me to go back to school to pursue my Family Nurse Practitioner degree. Over the last two years, I have cried, studied, drank roughly a million cups of coffee, and gone through more cans of dry shampoo than I can count. I have been frazzled, busy, and stressed- but in the midst of all of this, I have still felt that same incredible peace that I am doing exactly what God has called me to. As I walked across the stage and saw my family and friends cheering me on, I felt an amazing sense of accomplishment and thankfulness. I am so thankful for the wonderful education I have received, and what that education will allow me to do. This is just the beginning- and I can’t wait to get started! #classof2018#andersonuniversity#familynursepractitioner
I have so much love for my Alma Mater, @fullsail
I finally achieved the one thing I have been working hard for, for such a long time. There was a lot of late and sleepless nights involved just to catch the 11:59pm deadline.
It takes a lot of discipline, sacrifices and knowing what my priority is to have come this far, choosing to work multiple jobs and working insane amounts of hours on top of full-time school was a killer and insanity but it is very possible.
As an online student all through out my whole bachelors it's sad that I wasn't able to see my school until 3 years later, but it made it even more special to see it today and I fell in love with it even more.
To all my family! I can't thank you enough for all the support you all have given from the very beginning. A special thank you to my mom and my brother @alainmyloveonyou and my aunt Liza who came and be part of my special day. (Mamamia, you finally graduated as well! You did a really amazing job for me and my brother to get this far, you pushed and talked to us multiple times for us not to give up and keep working!)
Also I want to thank you all my friends and co workers to have given me all the pep talk and support to get me this far. All of you played a big role to keep me up and going, you all know who you are.
I am proud to say I am now an Alumni of Fullsail University of Florida with a Bachelor's in Computer Science majoring in Computer Animation.
My journey now starts and it's a new chapter to write. Thank you all again!
Once upon a time, I dreamed of having a daughter. You know what? This beautiful, kind, smart, funny, adventurous, passionate, independent, purpose-driven daughter that I have has far exceeded the dreams I had. 💕
Congratulations my sweet pea!
