Tonight was it. Tonight was the last night of classes for my MBA. After tonight, there is only the ceremony. After tonight, there is the rest of my life. Tonight is one of those times when I can say that I feel like my life is starting all over again and is a celebration! Tonight is the when I realize that I accomplished a goal that I set for myself four years ago. Tonight is the night when I realize that I accomplished something I first dreamed of over 15 years ago. Tonight is the night...I did it!

All that work, all that dedication, the sacrifice of time...all leading to this moment tonight. It's strange to think that on a Monday afternoon I thought to call the admissions office, met with them on Tuesday, turned in my application on Thursday, got my acceptance on Friday and started school on Saturday. What a week! And it only got more intense and more horrible and more wonderful.

The women I met and spent time with in the past four years have been, and will be, some of the most influential women in my life. I have been lucky through the years to have incredibly strong women in my life to look up to and learn from. Business school has been no exception. For that, I am grateful.
