I learned that I am my toughest critic. For those who know me, you know I was on 10 last semester concerning my classes. I’m tough on myself because I am at a constant state of self-awareness. I know my potential and I expect to excel in what I know I should excel in. However, I took a class with an instructor who gave no feedback, dialogue or resources that were deemed valuable or useful for the online course I was enrolled in and I felt I was totally lost and possibly failing the class until I read an email from my school I received congratulating me for achieving academic honors for the past semester.
It feels good to work for something you believe in so much and you excel beyond that you ever expected. I was a high school teen mom with dreams of going to college, pledging a sorority and having the whole college experience. I thought my pursuit of a degree eluded me when I became pregnant. But God…
When you know your purpose and you plan properly to pursue it, NOTHING is IMPOSSIBLE! It will only be a matter of years before you can call me Dr Michele Santiago.
Always remember YOUR why. Gladiator mom, signing off!
