Can't believe I am officially finished....I graduated with my Bachelor's degree. I have come a long way to get to this point. Failing my first 2 years, not caring about school to finishing my Associates on the Dean's list and my BA with a 3.45 gpa. I am so proud of myself, with God all things are possible. Thank #easternillinoisuniversity for an amazing run #classof2015 #eiu #eiupanthers #bachelorsdegree #generalstudies #psychology #graduate
