Mom was so proud and excited to see me graduate from NYIT. 5 long years of hard work in the Architectural Program, endless nights of her worrying if I’m sleeping or eating enough. I can’t even count the amount of times she drove food to the old Westbury campus when we did overnighters to get projects done in time.
She helped me achieve my dreams and goals. Always believed in me and encourage me to reach for the stars.
During my graduation, while no one was around she quietly said “I’m so proud of you, your all grown up”. She didn’t want me to grow up, she wanted to continue to take care of me.
Mom… You will always take care of me from the heavens. And I will show you what I have achieved because of you.
