Loved all the pomp and pageantry of graduation! Though most of all, grateful for the happy memories of four of my best years! Thanks to all family and friends, faculty and staff for supporting me and helping me complete my undergrad! #byugrad #byu

Two great things happened this weekend! A posh soirรฉe to celebrate graduation with good friends and a bitter sweet moment as I led the Best Buddies at BYU program for the last time! Of all my college memories none are more fond or precious than the four years I spent working in this program. Admittedly I am sad to have to say goodbye but will never forget the hundreds I have met and the fortunate experience I had to work so very closely this last year with so many incredible and talented people! I am especially thrilled to have been buddies with my forever buddy Devin, who I adore more than anybody! #bestbuddies4life #byu #yserve #graduation

One of the greatest achievements in Best Buddies this year has been the introduction of an academic arm called Wonderwood Academy. This is a pilot program developed by the mother of a girl with Down Syndrome. It has come to BYU as a college bridge program for adults with Down Syndrome. It includes academics, home economics, off-campus living arrangements, fitness and well-being and an all round outstanding college experience! There is no program like it in the US, so watch this space as this is on the verge of going nationwide in the future!! Special thanks to Circus Trix indoor trampoline park that hosts them for a fitness session every Thursday! #bestbuddies #circustrix #byu

Not that Iโ€™m one to post like this, but I have always been keen on brand loyalty; which is why I have recently switched to Virgin Mobile US and have always flown Virgin Atlantic to go home to the UK. Itโ€™s rarer these days to feel valued as a customer, but tonight I felt valued and was given a few extra perks in the form of - a bowl of delicious and posh treats and a first class cheese and fruit platter on a flight to Manchester. Two of the Staff recognised me as a frequent customer from previous journeys which is why they rewarded me! I was also offered a glass of champagne on the house, which I obviously declined ๐Ÿ˜œ... So here is a shoutout to the Virgin Brand, in all its forms, who always puts the customer first and goes the extra mile - no pun intended! #LivefromVirgin

Our granny gave a guest lecture here at BYU last night surrounding her experience as an Evacuee during the Second World War. What an amazing story is hers, of a young woman who had to leave her home in London for safety during such a devastating time! Here she is telling her experiences seventy years later, holding the very same flag she waved to celebrate victory in Europe in 1945! Special thanks to Professor @jillwknapp for making this possible. #ww2 #evacuee
