During my break, I went into the classroom and cried. Immediately afterwards, I called my mom and told her. I have been overwhelmed with so many emotions since then but tears of joy have been a regular expression, exclaims, Simene’. It still seems surreal but I have learned that your work and efforts will speak for you and what one person may deem insignificant, another group of people deems worthy and highly significant.”
