On the brink of graduation
So close I can almost taste it
My graduation from FAU is in a matter of months now. In May 2015 I will officially be a child welfare social worker with my bachelors degree in hand. My internship begins in January, so that means planning for the internship begins later this month when my semester begins. I think I might freak out soon. I can't believe I'm so close to achieving a major goal. Never did I ever think I would be to this point in my life. I am grateful for the chance of this experience. It has taught me a lot about life and living. I am so proud of myself for overcoming every struggle I have faced along the way. It has been a difficult journey, but, in the end, it is going to be worth it. I have also ventured into a rewarding volunteer position which will help me transition into social work. I am a Guardian ad litem for 4 wonderful children in foster care. I may just be beginning, but I know this will be a beneficial experience that I will never get anywhere else. I am excited for my future...and, really don't want to go into too much about things because I will start to second guess myself if I keep going. I hope anyone who reads this understands that the journey will be difficult, and sometimes seemingly impossible, but NEVER GIVE UP!
