It's been over a decade of knowing one another and though we don't see nor talk to each other on a daily basis it never took away the love and admiration I have for you! Through the years I've seen you overcome obstacles, grow in the Lord's name, and accomplish so much! I am extremely proud of you Kiki, words can't even explain! GOD bless you and continuous prosperity in all your endeavors!!! Love you mama ❤️ #WCW

The end is often the beginning I must admit that this graduate degree simply showed me that it is imperative that one takes action. Every story you've ever connected with, every leader you've ever admired, every puny little thing that you've ever accomplished is the result of taking action. You have a choice! You can either be a passive victim of circumstance or you can be the active hero of your own life and path. Looking back, I may have been naïve in my decision to teach, thinking, as what the general public may think also, ‘how hard can it be?’ To my surprise, it is the hardest, thankless job I ever ended up loving. I am grateful for the turn of events that lead me to become a teacher, otherwise I would not have found my calling. Perhaps the most important characteristic of an effective teacher is to emulate the traits of a life-long learner. Remember to always aim high, but be aware that even before you have reached your ultimate professional destination, if you always strive for excellence, you can and should have a substantial impact on the world in which you live. Be encouraged and be inspired ; as a woman of color if I CAN and I DID, so can YOU! #mysuperpowerITEACH #mastersdegree #paceuniversity #classof2017 #teachingfellows #honorsociety #gradschool #graduate #togodbetheglory
