Well, on Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at 11 am this long 12 year journey will come to an end. My adviser and I spoke by phone on how the defense will go today. Then I opened my door and my graduation invitations had arrived. I started to cry. It’s hard to believe that I am actually done. Every single day of this journey seemed beyond impossible and yet with just moving forward each day, step by step, I finally made it to the finish line. To GOD be the glory.
