12 Years; then… I Graduated Graduation was the most important day in my life. I waited for this amazing day for twelve years to reach my dream and move on to college. For most people, graduation is a memorable day. It is hard for me to forget it even after a hundred years. The day I woke up realizing it was my graduation day, I was smiling all day long knowing that I had made my family proud of me.
Good evening parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, and friends. I would like to thank you all for coming to this very special day. I know how proud you must be. As we have grown over the years, there are many stages we all have gone through. From learning our shapes and colors, to getting our first kiss in middle school, or how about explaining to our parents why we skipped school because the principal called home.
One summer around 2010, my family received a phone call from India inviting us to one of my cousin’s wedding in India. That was a precious moment for me as I saw the happiness in my parent’s eyes. Their eyes filled with tears of happiness as they finally got an opportunity to take a break from stressful life and meet my grandparents after six years. Even though we have made a foreign country our new home, there is no greater feeling in the world than returning to my motherland India. This trip impacted my life greatly and strengthened my roots to India.
When her three children had grown and moved away, when her foster children had all found permanent homes, she enrolled in college. Reaching for what others said would be impossible, she graduated with honors from Stoll Community College 35 years ago. Two year... ... middle of paper ... ... word. Most importantly, thank them for the unconditional love they continue to show. Mom, thank you for everything, I love you very much.
I stand before you tonight because of love — love that was given to me and displayed in its purest, sacrificial form. This evening, I would like to share with you how that love has changed my life. When my parents enrolled me at Milkins Academy 13 years ago, they recognized the fact that the value of a Christian education is far greater than a new house or car. The material possessions that they have forfeited through the years have allowed me to remain in an environment in which I can see Christ lived out every day. For the sacrificial love that my parents have displayed, together with the parents of all my class members, I am exceedingly grateful.
Shortly after, they received a letter from Father, all the way from Russia, saying that he is still alive. In December 1948, her junior year, Yoko received a full scholarship from Sagano to attend Kyoto University’s experimental English Village Program, along with thirty-four other. After graduating Sagano, Yoko continue studying in the program and graduated in the spring of 1950, being one of the four left that did not drop out. They haven’t heard from Father since the last letter in 1946 but was mistaken after another letter saying that he will arrive at Kyoto in a couple of days. All three were extremely excited to finally be reunited with Father after several years apart but was hesitant to break Mother’s death to him.
My original friends that grew up with and spend the greatest moments of my life are in my home country. We went to school together since kindergarten until I came to the united state of America. My friends are the special flavor of my existence. It’ was unacceptable to separate after years of love and respect .Nevertheless, I have met such a wonderful and truly new friends who always wish the best for me .My new friends are from different countries that influenced me to aim higher in my education pathway. The most recent transition that just has happened in my life was on July twenty sixth, two thousand and sixteen, it’s my wedding date.
I smiled at myself before jumping out of bed. I couldn’t believe it, my wedding day was finally here! I know when some people think about weddings they think about arrangements, food, wedding members, guests, stress, and time that goes into planning a wedding. I, on the other hand, was lucky to have a very small, informal wedding at my parents apartment.. After attending our last marriage counseling session, we were surprised to get a call from the pastor that Friday evening asking if we’d like to get married the following day. We had already went to the courthouse to fill out our license about two weeks prior to our wedding date, so there were no hold-ups.
Enjoying our time together is just the best thing in the entire world. I take him home, and I tell him something that almost exposes me. I tell him about the first day we met and what he was wearing. I tell him about how every year in highschool in one way or another I write about him in my english class because of the impact he has made on my life. All he had to say is that he is happy he could help me in one
On the first day at my new job right after graduation, the Vice President asked me why I became a structural engineer. My answer was “I want to contribute to society and my local community using my strengths in numbers and analytical thinking.” This answer has never changed to this day. I moved to this country when I was 18 years old. My parents were very passionate about providing me and my sister with the best opportunities available even above their comfort zone. They let me and my sister move to the United States because this is the country of opportunities.
