Grad School Decision

๐Ÿ“šIโ€™m going to Business School!๐Ÿ“š

I was recently admitted to the Master of Science in Marketing program at Santa Clara University Leavey School of Business and will start in the Fall ๐ŸŽ‰

Several barriers stood in my way when considering #gradschool – Will I have to give up my role at Instagram? Should I wait for a full-tuition merit scholarship (like USC?) Does it have to be an MBA ?

Am I cut out for this?

I almost talked myself out of an ideal program for my life right now, something I am beyond capable of.

๐Ÿ“šI can complete this program while working full-time + remotely at Facebook

๐Ÿ“šI can do my best to finance this degree given my responsible habits post-graduation, and continue to pursue scholarships which recognize Iโ€™m at the top of my industry + a high-performing student. Worth it either way.

๐Ÿ“šI donโ€™t need to follow anyoneโ€™s path on the type of degree I obtain. I havenโ€™t gotten this far by blindly emulating others. I create opportunity for myself with strategic academic pursuits.

I am rising from the ashes of this climate and eager to be a student again. Bring it.

Go Broncos,
