“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” -Martin Luther King Jr. ...my last year of law school was one of the hardest years of my life. I had every reason to take a break, to quit, to fall apart, but I knew I’d be so much happier if I somehow kept it together and graduated, so I did. I wiped my tears and went to school every day and worked harder than I had ever done before. I am so glad I did! Not only did I graduate while most people while have dropped out, but I graduated 4 months pregnant! Nothing felt better than walking across that stage with my baby kicking inside my belly, knowing he’d be proud of me when he was old enough to understand how strong I was! 💙
At first, I was shy about sharing on social media
I was super private about my life
Never wanting anyone to know too much
I even wondered if people really cared about me
But about a year something happen...
I got over my damn self lol!
I realized that by letting my own light shine
I gave others permission to do the same
The more fearless I became
The more my actions impacted others
Its kind of ironic actually
the more I share about my life
the more others wanted to share with me about theirs!
if you are willing to take a leap if faith
from being shy to becoming unshakable, lets connect!
comment with a ❤️below or send me a message!
I love mentoring women on what I did to break through it
and if what i did can also change you
i'd love to be a part of YOUR personal journey!
and it starts by being courageous
its starts by stepping out of your shyness
and into making an impact in the lives of others!
Well, it would appear that I have just applied for a PhD at St. Andrews.
I would like to dedicate this post to everyone that has provided assistance, guidance, feedback and advice.
Prof. Nasim (Almost) Dr. Simons

(Also soon to be) Dr. Debaene
And of course the ever wonderful (and almost) Dr. MacKenzie
Thank you all, this has been the most challenging process I’ve ever been through. Now we wait.
Martin Luther King Jr. finished his education and became married, but wasted no time as he got quickly involved in the civil rights movement.
In 1948, Martin Luther King received a degree in sociology from Morehouse College before moving on to Crozer Theological Seminary, where he earned a Bachelor of Divinity in 1951. He furthered his education by receiving a Ph.D. from Boston University on 1955.
While finishing his education, King began to seek ministry and love. He married Coretta Scott in 1953. Their marriage would last until his death and the couple had four children.
King also became the pastor of Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. This congregation would become a crucial part of King’s civil rights work.
Claudette Colvin and Rosa Parks were the two women who were arrested in 1955 for refusing to give up their seats on the bus to white people. This was a violation of the Jim Crow laws, which enforced racial segregation.
Martin Luther King Jr. led the Montgomery bus boycotts, which was a protest to the arrests and the unfair laws. For 385 days the black community refused to take the bus, harming their business. Following bombings of King’s home and much tension, the Browder v. Gayle decision was made, which declared that bus segregation was unconstitutional. This ended the boycott, but not the civil rights movement.

You are love. Don't let yourself or anyone else tell you otherwise 💕#ScholarSunday ⠀
This past week I have noticed myself using a lot of negative self-talk. When I don't understand a concept in a reading or something is taking me longer than expected. ⠀
I am constantly reminded to go back to my role as a learner and not an expert. I am here to learn. And in order to learn, I need to remember that I am capable of learning. ⠀
If I treat myself with respect and love, I am able to do this. At my core, I am love. I treat others with love and respect. I need to start doing this for myself. ⠀
A good reminder for the week ahead...⠀
What are your reflections on the past week and what are you working on in the week ahead? ⠀

Sunday Evening 🌟
I’ve been trying to make Sunday evenings positive and productive instead of getting anxious or worried about the week ahead. I plan out any meetings/testing/personal events that I have during the week 🗓. I then write what I want to achieve for the week, which I make sure corresponds with my monthly and yearly goals. I try not to be too harsh on myself if I don’t quite achieve a certain goal within the week because then it turns out to be a counterproductive process 👎🏼. This week I’m hoping to finish calibrating all my strain gauges (I have 8 different sizes)📐, pilot the technique with a slightly different protocol and work on making some changes to the methods section of my proposal 📖. Now it’s time to relax, spend some time with Hayden and get excited for another week ahead 😊 Also I’m seeing Jimmy Carr tomorrow, ready for a laugh 😂
Do you believe that everything happens for a reason? Have you lost people in your life who were really close to you? During my graduate school career, something happened to me which is an extremely rare occurrence. MY BOSS DIED. Yes, everyone in my lab became an “orphan” and had to struggle and fight to either finish and get the fuck out or continue with another supervisor. Luckily it all worked out. But, I’m telling you- the true character of human beings is determined under THESE situations. The cocksucker professors who tried to loot our equipment during this time, the asshole directors giving false promises (he died too after that may he RIP lol). So, when you go through tough tough times, obstacles, barriers.. You become stronger, develop thicker skin… and are prepared for what lies ahead. Have you seen yourself in these situations?
