It’s been 12 days since my graduation and i already miss everything. I walked down infinite hall my last night at MIT, while tearing up i thought about all the amazing things that happened to me in that place. The past 4yrs went by fast but at the same time it felt like a lifetime. I am a completely different person now and i experienced, learned and had more fun than i ever thought i would in college. I met some of the most inspiring people in my life and im proud of what every single student in that school achieves on a daily. These kids showed me that anything is possible and work hard play hard is not just a concept!! It’s a lifestyle ;) It took me leaving my family and friends behind back home, starting from scratch in a new country, making major sacrifices, getting out of my comfort zone and working harder than ever for many years to get to where i am today and words cant describe how thankful i am for everyone that believed in my abilities and supported me through every step of the way of this journey. I felt lonely, clueless, frustrated, regretful, with no direction or hope many times, but it all worked out at the end, and i wouldn’t want to trade this feeling or where i am today with anything else in the world.
Im a proud mechanical engineer that was lucky enough to call MIT my home for 4yrs and if there’s one thing I want you to take away from this post is what my mom told me one day that i think about every single day when i wake up: “if you want something with all your heart, nothing and no one can stop you. You can make any dream come true if you work hard enough for it.”
