It took eight years. And now, finally, this writer has earned her bachelor’s degree.
It was time. With an associate’s degree in communications and a few scattered credits at colleges around the city, and with a hefty writing career behind me, I made the decision to enrich my writing by enrolling at Hunter College. What a remarkable education. Not only did I end my time with a perfect score in my literature and writing classes, but I was honored to be chosen at the student speaker at commencement., which took place yesterday at Cooper Union. Standing at the same podium that Abraham Lincoln once used, this newly minted graduate with a CUNY Baccalaureate in Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies received the Nan Bauer-Maglin Prize for Literary Studies, and will be studying (why stop now?) at the CUNY Graduate Center in the fall.
For those of you who attended the ceremony and showed your support, a heartfelt thank you. For those of you who weren’t able to attend, the text of the speech is below. The only thing missing was an introduction with the theme song from Rocky. Unfortunately, the piano player had to leave for another gig after the national anthem so we’ll save it for another time. Enjoy!
