My first blog ever on this website was at the very end of my first year at USC. I read it right before writing this one. I remember sitting in the rose garden across USC’s campus and seeing seniors taking graduation photos. I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to be in their shoes, and now here I am a couple of months away from graduating. Although I won’t be able to take graduation photos on campus, due to the global coronavirus pandamic, I’m extremely thankful to be where I am now and to have had the experiences I did on campus.
I grew professionally thanks to all my formal and informal mentors, I am leaving with more skills and knowledge that helps me problem solve at a fast pace, I made friendships that I will carry with me for the rest of my life, and all of this while having fun and being stimulated intellectually. I am incredibly happy to be on the career path I am and look forward to making an impact on the world around me through the knowledge and experience the I’ve gained while at USC.
