about this story

It is off to the races! Race to the finish line, that is.
At the top of my mind (as probably yours too) is to make it to May 2022 - graduation time.
The 5 pictures tell a story about my journey to a docotoral degree.
First, I mentally prepared myself for the long journey by convincing myself that I am a rockstar and can do this. After, consulting with my family and mentors to get the needed support, I enrolled in a PhD program. I was off to the races.
Second, I encountered a slight swerve in the road. A new position and move to Richmond halted the race to the finish line.
Third, I stumbled upon the EdD program signposting and suddenly felt re-energized to start the race once again.
Fourth, the EdD program felt like a breath of fresh air although bumpy at times, however not alone because a cohort of classmates was always alongside for support and encouragement.
Lastly, I look forward to May 2022 where I see myself reflecting on my accomplishments and looking out from the inside to find someone who I can mentor in order to pay it forward.
