Last Friday, the day I had been waiting for since I got my acceptance letter to Texas A&M University arrived. I finally got my beautiful Aggie Ring. It’s not just a class ring like at other universities. It’s a symbol of all the hard work I’ve put in the last three years, an official introduction to the Aggie Network, and a reminder of all of the friends I’ve made along the journey. Thank you to all of my family and friends who were there for me on such a special day and I know it may not seem like a big deal, to which I say…. “From the outside looking in, you can’t understand it. And from the inside looking out, you can’t explain it.” Congrats to all of the other Aggies who received their rings this weekend and Gig ‘Em!
Today students of my illustrious Univeristy ( The North Carolina A&T State University) marched to save our on-campus polling sites, to protect voter rights, to speak against civil injustices, to address police brutality and to keep our campus safe and gun free.
