    Today is the day where one chapter is complete and my journey as a post secondary student is over. It is hard to say what my life will ultimately look like, but I know this program and the people I have met and the relationships I have made will definitely have an impact on what I become and how I live my life. Sometimes in life the path is not straight and that was certainly the case for me. Grateful to finally be here.
