GRADUATION

6 02 2012

 It came, we concurred and it STUCK! 16th January 2012 was a day of reckoning for me and all those that celebrated with me my Graduation from College. It was the best culmination of 3 years of hard work and dedication.

It all started at 6am when i woke up to prepare for the unexpectedly great day. We drove to the University freedom square with my parents where the function was to take place. Like all other graduation days, the trip to freedom square was slow but enjoyable despite the traffic.

By 9am, i was already seated in the Graduates tent at freedom square just in time for the function as the Chancellor and his procession had just got in. The function started with award of PhD’s for the several candidates followed by Master Degree awards and finally Bachelors and Diploma’s.

I waited patiently in our tent for my name to be read and when it was finally read, it was all smiles and joy for me and all my fellow graduates as we raised our Graduant Hats up high for every one to see.

After my name was read, i left freedom square with my classmates and took our final class picture that would seal our journey together for last 3yrs in our memories forever. We were all jolly and looking good on this memorable day whose journey started on the same grounds during our fresher orientation 3 years ago.

My Classmates

At home everyone was waiting congratulate me.  Aunts, Uncles, cousins, Grand parents, Parents, Brothers, Sisters and Friends all made it to my big day and shared a very special luncheon with me to celebrate this big day.

Besides the celebrations, I also got to meet relatives I had no met in years. Uncles, Aunts and Cousins i last saw when i was a child all showed up on my day. It was emotional for me and I am so glad they came to celebrate with me.

16th January 2012 is day never to be forgotten for me.

Let me take this opportunity to thank my parents for facilitating my education and ensuring that they educate me to this stage and “I won’t disappoint them“. I also thank my siblings for all the support they gave me. Great thanks go out to all my relatives and friends that supported me and to those who came to witness my graduation. Finally, I would like to thank YOU the readers of this blog for all the loyalty, reading and various kinds of support you gave me.

It’s been an HONOUR for me to reach this great mile storm and I AM GOING TO ACHIEVE MORE.

At the time of posting, i am working as a Volunteer Biologist in aWildlifePark as you can read some of the previous posts. So i guess my career as a Biologist is just getting stated.

My future plans are to advance my career as a Biologist through getting hands on field experience and later going for further education for MSc and PhD. THE JOURNEY JUST GOT STARTED.

This is my final post on this blog so let me close off by saying, THE QUEST FOR KNOWLEDGE IS AN ONGOING PROCESS AND WILL GO ON NO MATTER WHAT KIND OF QUALIFICATION YOU ACHIEVE. SO TO ALL OF YOU, KEEP READING AND EDUCATING YOURSELF and like Steve Jobs (RIP) put it, “STAY HUNGRY, STAY FOOLISH”…. And always “FOLLOW YOUR HEART”!

Before i sign off i would like to share somethings with you…..

This is my Transcript (I had to black out lots of sections in order to protect myself and for privacy concerns).

Your the Judge.

Finally, i would like to share the following songs with these special people…
