Ciara Graduates
Last Saturday I graduated from Texas A&M with a Bachelors of Business Administration in Management. This weekend was filled with a whirlwind of conflicting emotions. It’s still hard to believe that college is over. It’ll feel so weird to not head back to College Station in the fall. The concept of life being split into chapters has never resonated with me more than it does now. This chapter of my life has come to an end, but that just means I’ll be starting a new chapter with new faces in new spaces. I’ve absolutely loved college. College Station became my home and the people became my heart. Time has flown by, but I’m happy to say that I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. These past four years were the best years of my life(thus far). With all of the wins, losses, challenges, triumphs, happiness, lessons learned, and heartbreaks, I’m more than happy with how everything turned out. Four years ago, I couldn’t have predicted where I’d be moving, where I’d be working, who I’d become friends with, etc. I can’t say that I’m not anxious about the future. Walking into the unknown is scary. However, I do know that God will continue to guide me and make good on his Promises just as He always has. There is so much that I’ll miss about my college life, but I’m definitely looking forward to the future. This is just the beginning.

Congratulations to all the 2015 graduates!

Thank you to my wonderful friends and family for showing me so much love this weekend! You are appreciated.
