It is hard to believe that I am graduating in a few days… I feel like I came here only a few months ago, but I cannot even remember how I felt and how I was when I came here two years ago. I have so many great memories from these two years at Willamette. Sometimes it was hard, sometimes it was sad, but there are so many things that are so precious for me… I cannot thank enough all the people who made my life at Willamette possible and amazing!
The best thing in my WU life (perhaps the best in my life) is my friends. Without them, I would not have been able to survive college life and I would not be like the person I am now. Whenever I was stressed out, I would hang out with my friends and I laughed so hard. I laughed so hard that I forgot that I was stressed out. My precious friends are all as weird as I am and I love them. They are very funny and so sweet. They are also very smart and inspiring. I learned a lot from them, as much as I can learn in classroom. All the knowledge, skills, and connections that I earned are so precious for my life and the majority of them are coming from my amazing friends. I will keep my connections with them and they will continue to be influential and important for my life.
I want to thank all the people who made my life at Willamette so successful and so precious and to my family who gave me the amazing opportunity to come here and study. I am so grateful to be able to graduate from the Sociology Department from Willamette University and to study with outstanding professors and classmates! Thank you so much everyone and Willamette! I will miss you a lot, but everything I experienced and gained now will lead me to the future and become the most important part of myself.
