December 17, 2017 at 10:08am I walked across the stage to receive my diploma!!!
I am finally a alumna from the University of Hawai'i at Manoa. I received my Bachelor of Science in Fashion Design and Merchandising with an emphasis in Merchandising.
This day has been long awaited but I am so relieved I am done with school...for now. Who knows, I may go back in the future. I never want to stop learning because knowledge is power! I wanted to share some photos from my graduation on my blog.
Fall 2017 Commencement, 900 students.
My fellow Fashion Design and Merchandising clan. Well, besides that boy. I don't know where he came from!!!
Without my parents help, I would not have been able to do it.
Thanks to my parents endless support throughout my schooling years. My parents have constantly supposed me, and I couldn't have been more blessed, with the best!
No matter how many people told me the fashion industry is impossible to make a comfortable living and finding a "secure" job after graduation, is completely wrong! I never listened to y'all and I am so glad I was never discouraged by those. I used it as a fuel to my fire and I can say I am so happy I pursued what I wanted to do, because I am happy, and extremely blessed with my choice and my life.
So, I encourage y'all to do the same.
