This is it. After those seemingly endless nights of hard work, reading seventy-page-long cases and almost century-old journals so thick and heavy they could probably kill someone if thrown, three long (but good) years later, I’m finally standing here at the pinnacle of Law school and university, my head held high – as proud and happy as I can be that I’ve made it this far. I’m incredibly thankful for the wonderful people I’m so lucky to have around me, constantly supporting and encouraging me, even at the times when I broke down in the middle of the night and called my mother who was thousands and thousands of miles away on an eight-hour time difference just because I (thought I) couldn’t handle the pressure and the workload.
I’ve come this far, and I’m going to see it through – because I know, better than anyone else, that I can do this. This is the last stride, the final battle, after which the sweetness of graduation awaits. Wish me luck!
PS. ..and a new beginning.
