A few final words:                                                  

Lastly, I just want to say that even though I had to put in a lot of work over these past two years, I am so glad I did it. I spent a lot of weekends studying and I didn’t have a typical high school experience. However, it was all worth it when I was able to walk on stage and receive my Associates degree!
