“From 2013 to 2017, I was a serial college student after having enrolled in 3 different colleges over a 4 year period. Now at 30 years old, truth be told, I would not be here if it wasn’t for my family, friends, and MCNY. I vowed that I would graduate with honors no matter how hard it would be. This degree is not only mine, but it belongs to every person who has ever helped me get to this point. This is my thank you to all of you.”
And to that she added, “To all of my fellow graduates, In life there will be shame and guilt thrown your way. It’s up to you on how you respond to the negativity. Please remember, every accomplishment has its season, and every event has its reason. To the graduating class of 2019, may we all give a round of applause to all the Kings and Queens.”
Metropolitan College of New York, located at 60 West Street, is a private, college and consists of three schools: The Audrey Cohen School for Human Services and Education, the School for Public Affairs and Administration, and the School for Business.
