Today a dream of mine came true. Being born in Paris, I always dreamed of attending the most famous school there which is La Sorbonne. It is the equivalent to an Ivy League university but in France.
Today, I woke up and called La Sorbonne to find out if I had been accepted. I called worried, my heart was pounding and when the person on the other line told me that I had been accepted for license 3 (B.A) in Sociology. I could not believe it. I was so happy. I even cried. Sometimes, I doubt how smart I am.
My education has always been important to me. I have worked hard to get to where I am. I started Sarah Lawrence in the fall of 2012, but I had to leave due to it being too expensive and I did not want to put myself in that kind of debt. I left and attended Santa Barbara City College, which was horrible. I hated it there and was diagnosed with depression depressed over there. It was hard for me to be away from everyone and didn’t feel like I was accomplishing anything. I went back to Los Angeles and started school at West Los Angeles College. I attended school there for two years.
Than January 2015, I moved to France. I did not go the traditional way, but I am graduating on time. I did it! I will be graduating June 2016 from La Sorbonne with a bachelors in Sociology and then I will spend a couple more years there and get my masters in education so I can become a teacher.
La Sorbonne will not be easy but I am ready for the challenge. I am excited to be challenged intellectually and emotionally. I have been working since high school for this. I am glad that I do not have a boyfriend right now because that would make me distracted and nothing can or will distract me from my dream. I won’t let it.
