As part of my celebration following a succesful completion of my course, this post is dedicated to my dear Alma Mater... The University of Nottingham.
The University of Nottingham played a crucial role in my life within the past 3 years. My studies kept me going throughout the difficulties in life I have encountered here in the country I call my new home. This is a place where I was seen as the person that I am and not just a number. I often think to myself of the things that could have potentially happen if I was not succesful in gaining a place in this prestigious university... now that my future is going to be wholly influenced with my recent achievement, that question will remain unanswered. Not that I have complaints about the whole thing but sometimes, I can't help myself but wonder.
Was it worth it? It was worth every single second of the hard work I've put in because in the past three years, I could proudly say that as much as I have grown prefessionally my personal maturity have also grown enermously!
Looking back at the past 3 years of my life, many memories still make me smile (and I'm sure they will for a very long time)and make me realize how hard I've worked (I thought it was going to be impossible to achieve everything within 3 years but we all got through it). During the first week in the University was pretty scary as all we heard form module leader was how difficult things would be until we finish out course. Majority of the cohort made it to the graduation... very few left the course and a few have been put behind because they have failed on something. I sometimes think to myself... Oh my gosh! What about if it was me! It's such a relief that I can now look back at the whole thing and smile :)... Against all odds... I made it! (Melodramatic I know ;))
Anyway, I am here proudly sharing with you guys a background of the Univeristy where I was educated. I am proud to be part of The University of Nottingham and I'm sure you are proud with yours too :)
What about you? Where did you obtain you degree? What are the things that makes you proud about your college or university? Or even your secondary or elementary school? Nursery and kidergarten? Hmmm... Not sure but I guess there were funny stories you might remember and want to share with us ;)
