"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."- Marianne Williamson
I have not always been an academic achiever as a student. In my earlier years I didn’t have any idea of what I wanted to be. I will also admit that I wasn’t ready for college. I wasn’t ready to accept a responsibility of that magnitude, especially with the stress of my mother’s unpredictable health condition. For me, College was an overtime commitment that I wasn’t prepared to take on.
I woke up one morning with a vision from god and the belief that I could do it. And that’s all it took. I have never immersed myself in anything of this magnitude. I received my Associates of Science Degree in Process Technology this summer and I am so proud of myself!
Having this Process Technology Degree will open a world of possibilities for me career-wise. I plan to attend University of Houston in the fall of 2015 to receive my bachelor’s degree. I learned so much about Process Technology that it inspired me to pursue higher studies in Engineering. . I am so excited about what my future holds with the knowledge I will gain and how I will help my community grow in the future. I will continue to do everything in my power to not only meet my goals but transcend them, as I want to maintain grades that will reflect excellence in me and my course of study.
