Schoolin’ Life

Hello Passionistas!

This graduation season has been one for the books, it will forever be an everlasting memory in my heart. After so many late nights and early mornings, I graduated from Ashford University with my M.B.S with a specialization in Project Management.

My grad school experience was not what I had planned but everything worked out just fine. I am a hands on type of girl. So I wanted to attend grad school in the classroom, on a campus, where I would be able to interact with my fellow classmates and professors. But in reality, I had to work a full time job to support myself, which didn’t leave much time for classroom dreams. I was able to find a online program that fit my lifestyle perfectly. 18 months, a bunch of long nights and tears later, I received my graduation invitation to walk across the stage.

About a week ago, I left the east coast and traveled to the west coast to celebrate my latest accomplishment. The graduation was in San Diego, CA. So I decided to take a couple of days to vacation in Los Angeles with my family and friends.

It was my first time in Cali and I enjoyed very moment of it. I’m not really big on vacations because I am a workaholic. This year I have started a new job, created a new business venture out of my passion, and completed grad school- so a few days to let my hair blow in the wind a bit. You know I couldn’t go to California without going to Disneyland, so go to my IG account (@passionlocked) to see photos from my 1st Disneyland trip.

I’m super proud and excited for him. His life is just beginning! We are about 7 years apart, so I’ve always thought of him as my baby. He’s all grown up now. As the youngest of the bunch, I know my baby brother and I made our parents proud to see the young women and man we have both become.

 

In the words of Beyonce, “Time really moves fast, you was just 16.”

Because I am an extra celebratory person, I made my brother take graduation pictures with me, here’s some of them:
