I can't believe I'm already graduating since it seems like I just found my place here at NYU, a school that once seemed so daunting and out of reach. Thank you to everyone who has helped shaped me into who I am today, and I am forever thankful for all the incredible opportunities and the wonderful memories I've had at both universities I've had the pleasure of attending. While I may be done with my bachelor's, this is not an end to my pursuit of greater learning nor is it an end to my love of education. Rather, it is a step towards giving back and helping others reach for their dreams as an educator myself. I don't know what the greater future holds, but I do know that my love of learning will continue in the next year as I prepare to teach English in Shizuoka, Japan at the end of the summer! I am so grateful for all the support I have had in helping me reach my dreams, and I look forward to what new adventures the future holds!
