What a day! My time in Berkeley has officially come to a end 💔. Not only is today Mother’s Day but today i also took my last final, it almost doesn’t feel real. I know it seems like that’s all my posts say these days but it’s true. I just sit down and think back at everything my family has had to go through over the years and to see where we are now is just mind blowing to me. Despite all the hardships I would always tell myself I was gonna be successful. That I was going to achieve my dreams no matter what anybody may think and here is step 1. Just 2 more days for graduation and 4 more for my program abroad ✈️. I’m happy, sad, excited, scared, everything all at once 😭 👩🏻‍🎓💙💛 #cal #mothersday #storiesofus #mexicana #calgrad #ucberkeley #sathergate #firstgeneration
