So this is it. I can’t believe I’m typing my last blog as student blogger. This moment sure came faster than I’d imagined.

Before I go any further, I would first like to say a big thank you to Jane Abraham who made all this possible! And to everyone else behind the scenes, also a big thanks!

I’m grateful that I get to share with everybody everything I want people to know about life in and outside of college. So for those who followed our blogs and vlogs up to this point, THANK YOU!

It is one thing to tell people what’s on your mind but it’s quite another to leave a lasting impact on someone because of what you said. I believe that words are powerful, as they are able to make or break a person. I hope that our future bloggers and vloggers can see what a great opportunity this is to connect with others in a personal way because we all need to be reminded we’re doing a great job even if we don’t feel like it. Or that struggle is inevitable and things won’t always go as smoothly as we hope. Sometimes we need to be reminded that a little bit of light outshines the darkness. That perseverance and integrity are the recipe for any type of success. Maybe on the verge of giving up, you found strength and you want to tell others about it.

Bottom line is, we all need each other.

And to MC for becoming my home these past couple of years, I am forever grateful. Grateful for education. I can’t imagine myself being anywhere else to learn what I’ve learned about life and myself than here. I am grateful for the lasting friendships; I have found my diamonds. Grateful for the lessons, especially the hard ones. Thank you, MC, for allowing me to be myself and helping me become who I am and shaping me to become who I want to be.

 

Ray Ann

My name is Ray Ann. I grew up wanting to be a lot of things. Being a lot older now, I realize you never really grow out of those dreams.

I’m 23 years old, barely 5 ft. tall and often mistaken as a high school student. But you know what they say — good things come in small packages. Despite me being a little vertically challenged, I’m a huge basketball fan. I love fast cars and fast…food. I love the color pink and my friends’ sense of humor. I aspire to be the realistic half of my favorite female fiction characters: to be bold and fearless like Nikita, witty, intelligent and fashionable like Blair Waldorf and sweet and sassy like Cher Horowitz.

Being a blogger means a lot of things. We write about anything and everything, including our own lives. We can choose to be private or be an open book. But I hope to share only meaningful and helpful things to anyone who reads my blogs. Montgomery College will always be a big part of my life as it gave me an opportunity to find myself and discover the things I love and gave me all the more reason to be myself.

Let’s believe in each other.

  1. Ray Ann, I cannot believe the year is coming to a close soon either. It has been a pleasure working with you because you are diligent and so very reliable – something we don’t often find these days, but a very good feeling to know ‘hey, it’s Friday, and Ray Ann’s post WILL be there”. Your character speaks volumes for you and you will succeed, I am certain, in whatever your future plans will be. Best of luck with finals and have a great summer.
