I’m so proud of Our Graduate


In 2011 my dad took my kids on a trip to University of Connecticut. We  had no clue that would be the place one of them would end up going to school.Look at how young they were.




This photo is from five years ago. The start of his Journey. I was smiling yet I was nervous. I swear I didn't really want him to go. Although. I was okay knowing that he was still close to me. 
 I remember literally arguing with him:because he wanted to go to school clear across the county just about,  I think it Arizona, Florida,and and I wanna say California. 

Eventually setting his sites on the Bachelor of Arts Program at the University of Connecticut.Which we were okay with. Bring that he was much closer. And he was very interested in the Digital Media and Design Program that they had.



The last one is the best one yet .This is his/our final year. Yes,our because we got through this together. No graduation picture(no barber or Graduation 👨‍🎓 ). Thanks to this Pandemic!You guys will get one when this over(a Graduation picture that is) . 


To sum this all up he is a 2020 Graduate from the University Of Connecticut  Undergraduate With a Bachelors Degree  Digital Media and Design Major Web/Interactive Media Design Concentration.


Congratulations : Mr. Juwan G.Dumas


(I chose to use this photo because it was taken on one of his recent adventures;and he wasn't as serious)



Update: If you’d like to send him a monetary gift for his accomplishment his cashapp is $CydCt

Being that there wasn’t a traditional Graduation celebration due to this pandemic. I see that other people are making their information available. So, I’m making his available as well. Thank you in advance!

Instagram story inspiration

https://www.instagram.com/p/B19yDwclp1W/?igshid=g7ak6r7vcmc3

 I hope you’ve watched the short Instagram clip. It touched me this morning. Had me about ready to cry. 

  I was once a 16 year old that gave birth. Got pregnant at 15. Although I didn’t allow anyone to take my title from me. Yes,I was young. Yes, I had no idea what I was doing.Or how I was going to care for that child. Although I did what it was I had to do.

 And being young and misled I did it again 3 years later. And another six years  after that.

 This story had me in my feelings for a minute. Even though I was a child having to raise a child. My people was there but they weren't if that makes any sense.  just wouldn't consider myself although I was young not to be a mother.That's just a story for a different day. When I tell you it's deep I mean just that. I just rather not put anyone for they way they've held down the positions that they've held in my life.
By the grace of God I did it!
  
  I was literally about to shed tears watching this video. Although things are discombobulated right now. Things got done back then. And I am grateful.

  That now young man I had at 16 ;Is a 22 year old amazingly handsome intelligent young mart today. And the child I had three years later. At 19 years old smart mouth although equally intelligent beautiful young woman. And my baby boy another smart mouth individual became all of our baby. Is a 12 year old stubborn,smart hardworking(if you've met him or ever get to meet him you'd understand what I mean) young handsome boy(don't tell him I called him that.

Hopefully you get where I'm going with this. You never know who's story will touch you and have you thinking more about things you've experienced in life! I commend that young lady for telling her story. One day I'll go into full detail about mine.
