Second Act

Second Act

Having a college degree is something to cherish, but take it from someone who knows, the college degree isn’t always what it takes. As many as you know I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education but I haven’t been in the classroom in 8 years. While my life has taken a different turn, it is amazing to me the things that I’m asked about. But one of the things that I’ve never been asked is I have a degree. While it is important, it isn’t the end all be all. And while our lives don’t always go as planned, sometimes remaining positive and working really hard does pay for itself.

And while at first I was like poor Maya, we have all been Maya at one point or another in our lives. Book smarts aren’t everything, but neither is street smarts. Sometimes, it takes the unexpected to learn that you are just as good, if not better than someone who has a college degree. But it also works the other way. Stay strong, and work for what you want, whether it’s a college degree, or to work hard. But also when you believe in yourself anything is possible.
