Yesterday, I had the honor of sitting among brilliant scholars. Not only have these students completed the tasks necessary to graduate, they have also overcome many obstacles to do so, and that's what made the ceremony so special.

This is the point in college I've been dreading: being done and leaving. I've invested the last four years into being a student and I sometimes forget that I need to eventually move on and take off the "student hat." I have a lot to look forward to so I'm going to take a moment to brag.
I'm graduating with a degree in Journalism and Mass Communication. I've had a wide array of experiences and internships all leading me up to what to do after graduation and I can say that I have a plan! I'm moving to Los Angeles, CA this summer to intern at The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. I have always said that my dream job would be to host a talk show and one day I decided that there would be no better experience than to work on one so I started applying. After interviews with 3 different shows on both coasts, I landed The Late Late Show internship and I couldn't be more excited.
I can also say confidently that I owe all of my successes that led up to this to having a liberal arts degree - every job and internship experience I landed was because of Goldpass, emails and announcements from my student community and employers looking for well-rounded students like those of liberal arts backgrounds.
Although I hate to say goodbye to the university as well as the CLA, I have so much to look forward to and don't even know how to thank everyone that helped me get here.
