Everything That Glitters Ain’t Gold
Have you ever heard the quote, “Anything worth having is worth fighting for” or “Nothing worth having comes easy”??
Man, have I found that to be true!
I achieved one of my grandest goals this past December, and while I appreciate everyone congratulating and celebrating with me…
Most people have no idea what it took.
The truth is that “school” has never been difficult for me. I tend to excel in courses with ease. That is not a humble brag, but an avenue to share that everything else about “school” (at least this time around) was HARD AS HELL!
Earning a doctoral degree is hard (period). I’d argue though, that earning a doctoral degree as a young black woman in an environment where not many people look like you, can be especially brutal.
Simply put, the journey is just not meant for “us”.
I could go on and on about MY journey, and I will- but for now, just remember…
You never know what people grow through to get where they are!
Everything that glitters ain’t gold.
To be continued…
