Its that time of year again – students graduating and moving on. Congrats to my daughter for completing her Associates in Science Degree.  She will be the first one to tell you that it is nothing more than a piece of paper.  Still it is an accomplishment and half way the journey to getting a bachelor.

She also received this plaque from her college very deserving because she is someone who never hesitates to help anyone who asks for help. She always make the time to fit others into her schedule and help them in subject she excels at and they have difficulty in.20150606_125902

She was really thrilled going by the college have someone introduce her to a student and having that person say to her “You are Tresanne, I don’t know you but I know your name from your past papers. Leaving an institution and having people know your name because what you left behind is a good thing.  One of her greatest quality is just being happy for someone when their grades improve and never trying to take credit for it.

Some people when they help others they make to be all about them. If someone has fallen into a pit and you encourage that person to climb out. Give the person credit when they are out, don’t take all the credit. You might have helped but without effort on the part of the individual he or she would remain in that pit.  The lesson here is that if you do good people will know your name without you having to brag about your success.

I am very proud that she was one of the 100 students who were selected to participate in the 2013 NYC Air Flow Subway Test.  The study was done to test the airflow through the subway system. The data collected was to help first responders better understand how airborne contaminants could travel through the system so appropriate emergency responses could be developed.

That’s her in the glasses with the rest of her team. It was a rigorous exercise and they all did well.

To all 2015 Graduates whatever institution you may be graduating form walk proudly hold your heads up high and aim for new heights. You can achieve your dreams as long as you believe in your self and work towards your goals. When you have achieved your goal remember to reach back and help others.

I leave you with this quote: The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.”
― Kalu Ndukwe Kalu
