I got a surprising and sweet gift in the mail from my PhD advisor Dr Nicole Patton Terry. ‘Oh, the places you’ll go‘ is indeed perfect as a graduation gift and the note in it was perfectly suited still…what a great reminder. Thank you!
Of the four years I spent working towards my degree, the last year is certainly the most exciting. We moved from Atlanta to Houston and we learned we were expecting a baby. You could say my commute was long.
Naturally, I defended my dissertation 8 days before Sophia was born. Here I am all dressed up for the defense with Sophia in there saying “You got this mom”. And I did!
