Last month, I attended an Honors Program dinner where I was one of three students who received the "Outstanding Honors Scholar Award" and had to make a speech which isn't usually an issue because I love to talk but I was overcome with emotion. In that moment, if felt like all of my hard work(taking all 4 courses of the Honors Programs and finishing a 20 page paper) paid off and I was being recognized for my achievements in and out of the classroom at Berkeley was the icing on the cake.I also received my Honors cord that I wore on my robe at graduation this past Friday.

Graduation was definitely a day I won't ever forget! it was chaotic all morning and I wanted to look nice (for the pics of course) but get there before 9am which thankfully I did. I never realized how many different campuses there were until I saw ALL 1000+ students that were graduating and so proud that I could be apart of this momentous occasion. I was impressed at the commencement speaker Nina Vaca's speech as well as all of her accomplishments( if you don't know who she is, Google her...you will be blown away) Most importantly, when I walked on that stage, it was as if one chapter of my life had finished but at the same time, a new one was beginning.

I am still taking my internship and I have a few more events that I am involved in at Berkeley before I say my final farewell but it feels as if I have come to the end of the road at Berkeley.
One of my mottos is "Life is an experience....enjoy the ride" and I can honestly say that I have made the most of all of the ups and downs, twists and turns that Berkeley has brought my way and received more than I ever could have imagined. My advice to everyone is to make the most out of any experience that you encounter because you never know where it may take you.
