I have been keeping a secret for way too long and am way too excited to share the news: I have been accepted into an AMAZING graduate program and will be heading back to school this fall!
I will be in the Student Affairs Graduate Program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln working toward my Master of Arts in Educational Administration, specializing in Student Affairs.
As I've discussed on here before, I currently work for a scholarship program serving underserved youth in San Francisco. While I've always thought about a career in higher education, my time with the scholarship program has confirmed every one of my desires. I am honored that I get to make a career out of helping young people realize and achieve their goals. I will be attending school full-time, as well as working part-time as a graduate assistant with an honors academy on campus. I know it's going to be an interesting transition leaving my full-time job...but I am so excited for this new adventure.
I am thrilled to move back to my home state but obviously a bit sad to leaving California. I will miss the weekend trips to wine country, hikes through the foothills, the insanely delicious food and many dear friends that we've come to know and love. I am truly looking forward to being surrounded by family in Nebraska though!
Evan and I have a lot of decisions to make in the coming months as we figure out our plan. He's been nothing but supportive, and I cannot thank him enough for encouraging me throughout this process.
One thing is for certain: I am so ready for Husker football this fall! GO BIG RED!
