One of the best days of my life

We feel unspeakable joy with every step of progress our students make—and boundless gratitude for all who make that progress possible.

TODAY was the first day of university in my new country. It was one of the best days of my life. I wrote this poem to celebrate.

The heaviness in my heart was a stone in my throat

Leaving me voiceless 

Until today. 

I feel like a child:  innocent, hopeful, and fearless. 

The pen in my hand feels like a key to unlock all the locked doors.

The books in my backpack become a treasure in my hands.

It is a brand new start. 

          Let’s go 

                    Let’s make it work 

                               Let’s make it work for everyone and everything.
