FINALLY! One milestone achieved, I graduated! It’s been a while since I haven’t posted because I was moving out from my apartment and traveling a bit for work and fun. I know, I know, that’s not an excuse but trust me, moving out is the worst thing ever. I didn’t know I had so much stuff until I had to pack everything.
My family came over from Dominican Republic and we went to Vegas, had a lot of fun, partied a bit, met amazing people, worked a few days and won a jackpot in the slot machines, what more could I ask? Well, to top everything I got my degree in Bachelor’s for Business Administration, Double Major in International Business and Marketing with a 3.80 GPA Magna Cum Laude! YEEEEEEES!!! After four years of hard work in Dominican Republic and Miami I finally slayed that college life and made myself and my family proud.
A little background info, I am the first and only son of my parents to obtain a college degree and to study abroad. This made everything more special to me and to my parents, and siblings. I can’t describe the pride I felt as I wore my cap, gown and honors chord. I sat with my closest friends in the ceremony and we were all saying to each other, now what? Well, I do know what I’m doing and I already started out my adulthood journey professionally and personally (You will know soon)!
I walked on that stage and all I did was look over to the crowd and smile thinking: “finally, I got this”, this is for everyone that believed in me, supported me and help me reach this point in life. So, let’s talk about what I did after. I went to have lunch with friends, their families and mine to one of my favorite restaurants in Brickell, Crazy About You (MUST). Food was amazing, the champagne was even better and the jokes and stories made our time there worth it.
Next stop! SUGAR Rooftop at the newest addition to Brickell’s hotels, The East Hotel. This rooftop is everything and a bit more. The view to the city is the best in town and the cocktails are great, they even have another one in Hong Kong (Maybe I should visit that one too very soon ;)). Then we took off to my favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner and some margaritas. Later on, I don’t want to tell you more but there were a few drinks already down my system and all I wanted to do was dance, really, like dance!
To me this day was one of my favorite days ever, the feeling of being graduated is scary yet exciting. Thankfully I know what my path is and I know it also involves you guys! I am so grateful for so many blessings in life and all that I have I owe it to God, family, friends and supporters.
Here I leave you with some pictures of my graduation, family pictures which I rarely post, some with friends and then my FAVORITE OOTD for my grad day!
