Happy Graduation Day to these Babes Wishing I could be there to celebrate ...and graduate with you! I love you both so much thank you for being my San Diego family! Here’s to your next amazing adventures 🥂Wahooo #nomoreschool 💕💕
I don’t even know where to begin with expressing how proud I am of my mama. She has faced countless obstacles, heard doubt from within as well as from others, and did not have an easy journey- but damn did she kill it. If anyone has shown perseverance, it’s my mom. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect woman to raise me. Thank you for showing me there is always a light at the end. Thank you for showing me that time doesn’t matter, passion does. Thank you for being you. Congrats to this future #badassnurse#nau#nursingstudent#nomoreschool
Two and a half years ago I was offered admission into Johns Hopkins University for a Masters of Science in Nursing for Health Systems Management.
Today I graduated with Hopkins’ highest masters-level academic honor, the Ruth Dale Ogilby award. 🤓 Ya girl is nerd af.
Aside from classes, 400+ hours of clinical rotations for school, and more Taco Bell than I care to admit, a lot has happened in the past 2.5 years. I lived 5,000 miles away from my best support system (family), juggled two jobs, was elected president of the Hawaii-Alaska @HIMSS chapter, bought my dream condo in Honolulu, learned more than I wanted to about refinancing, discovered new passions 🎣🏒, adopted the sweetest kitten, hiked some sketch mountains, swam with sharks, travelled all over the country, and met some truly incredible people along the way.
In these past 2.5 years my friends in Hawaii and my friends/family on the mainland have lifted me up more than you know. “It is what it is” might not be the most poetic expression, but nothing rings truer with me these days. We can’t always predict exactly how things will turn out, but we sure as hell can bust our asses trying and we can surround ourselves with good people. I feel so lucky to have you all in my life, and as always I’m excited to see what the future has in store. ❤️ #hopkins#graduation#nerdalert#gradschool#nursing#nurselife#travelnurse#hawaii#aloha#masters#finally#motivation#inspiration#family#friends#love @jhu #nomoreschool#dcgirl#DontBeSuck

FIVE YEARS AGO today I graduated from HBU. Five years ago, my journey was really just beginning! It's honestly so surreal to think about everything that has happened between now & then, and I couldn't be more thankful for the blessings and opportunities I have been given. Here's to five more years of adventure with this handsome man by my side! #moreadventure#nomoreschool

He estado esperando TODO el año para poder publicar las 2 primeras fotos!!! 😆
Ayer se graduó mi hermanito aka la persona más cool que puedan conocer 😎
Este tipazo sensacional que me acompañó durante 13 años de mi vida escolar y 18 años de mi vida ayer consiguió su diploma de enseñanza media y estoy orgullosísimo de él, pues él es la prueba viviente de que si amas algo no debes dejar nunca que las opiniones de nadie te detengan o te bajen el ánimo, que tu personalidad te hace único y eso es lo que la gente ama de ti, que si te gusta algo, tienes que dedicarle siempre unas horas al día para poder afinarlo y lograr los resultados que soñaste desde un principio, pero amando cada minuto y resultado del proceso.
Este sujeto ultra talentoso que siempre me ha apañado en todas mis ideas locas y tiene la mejor barba del mundo, ahora va a seguir impresionándonos mientras sigue haciendo las cosas que ama con una organización impecable como siempre.
🎉 ¡¡¡Felicitaciones Maxi!!! 🎉 (así es, usé el primer signo de exclamación ¡ porque esto es realmente importante)
My Kids are growing up😢 Where have the years gone🙈It only seems like yesterday you where born and I cuddled you for the first time and held your tiny hand and felt so much love for you💗 Now here you are 17 years on and leaving school to follow your dream. I’m so very proud of you 💗You have done 12 years at school and finished year 10. You are now ready to move onto your next adventure which is 4 days a week helping out at kindy with all those little people that love you so much. You try hard at everything you do Shannay and always achieve good results. I’m so happy for you and know you will be a great asset to any kindy that you help out at. You followed your dream and never gave up to work with children and that’s come true for you now. I hope 2019 will be filled with lots of happy times 💗 #proudmum#newadventures#nomoreschool#funtimesahead#summertime#holidays
Countless hours. Countless nights I stayed up studying. Countless nights I wanted to be anywhere but this chair with a textbook and a laptop. I’ve worked full time and gone to class full time. Some people never understood my “why” and my drive to work hard and suffer for a little, all for it to pay off for my future.
But now, that’s a wrap. I had my last class today for my masters degree. These past two years have been the most challenging yet eye opening years of my life. I’ve lost people who meant the world to me but gained people who’ve shown me what it really means to say they’ll be there and mean it. I love you guys for sticking with me through this journey and all the constant encouragement pushed me through (along with a little bit of coffee and a whole lot of Jesus)! Here’s to one more semester of intern hours and, finally, graduation 👩🏻🎓 #christmas 🎄 #christmasbreak#gradschoolprobs#lovefl#workhardplayharder#herestothefuture#nomoreschool#mastersdegree#mentalhealthcounselor#mentalhealthawareness#mentalhealthmatters 💚
Today was a success!!
I graduated with my Masters in Information Technology with a concentration in Software Development, with a 4.0 GPA from Middle Georgia State University! This wouldn’t be possible without the knowledge gained and life lessons I’ve learned from my #HBCU Albany State University!! And of course I have to thank my friends and family who supported me along the way!! #nomoreschool#Graduated#Masters#softwaredeveloper#HBCU
Just a few goals I’ve accomplished off my list lol
✅Bachelors Degree (3.6 GPA) #ASU
✅Masters Degree (4.0 GPA) #MGA
✅Job in my field (Application Developer)
✅Homeowner (since 2015)
✅Start a small business (#Pending2019launch )
Can’t wait to cross a few more off next year!!
This is my first time playing animal crossing and I must say — it’s Super CUTE 😭💖!!! @trainerhex bought this for me after hearing I’ve never played an #animalcrossing game (THANK YOU!!!). Turns out I never knew just how much I’ve been missing out on lmao! I’m super relieved that I can finally sit down and actually enjoy a game now that I’m done with school life 👨🏻🎓🎉🎊
