I received my dual degrees a couple of days ago and I am absolutely ecstatic. I had been waiting in anticipation for the “twins” to arrive and now that they have, I feel like I have truly closed another chapter in my life.
For those of you who don’t already know the details, I earned my dual BA degrees in Film and Media Studies and Political Science and the road to earning them was by no means an easy one as you might imagine but the payoff was definitely worth it.
There is always a sense of accomplishment that comes from working extremely hard for something. It is a sense that can only come after you have truly put your all into something but which lasts for as long as you live.
It makes you stronger both in mind and in spirit, gives you a greater confidence in your own might to achieve any task, and propels you to be the best at whatever it is you do.
It comes from something that is truly earned.
