As I adjusted my cap, zipped up my gown and looked in the mirror, tears welled up in my eyes. Today I am a graduate from Rasmussen College. The official ceremony was held today in St.Paul, MN but due to financial and health woes, I was unable to attend. However, I wanted to celebrate this happy moment in my life by taking pictures and spending time with my mom. I am proud I made it this far, and pray I will continue to go farther in my academic journey.
