Congrats, Berkeley's class of 2009! The whole ceremony can be seen online. Just head over to Blackboard and follow the link. I watched it and cheered (from my bedroom) for fellow classmates. And, like the dork that I am, I texted saying "I just saw you graduate!"
I can't wait to do the walk. I'm done with my classes in August so technically, I am part of the 2009 class. I took the 3-year curriculum so I've been a student non-stop since 2006. Some of you might think that's crazy but I think it was definitely worth it.
A bunch of my friends are graduating in a few days and it took them almost 5 years to get their Bachelors Degrees. I'm earning mine in 3. That's 3 years less tuition and 3 years headstart in the job market than the rest of my age group. Gotta be quick and smart. That's the Berkeley way!
Right now, I'm on my 'last sprint' of my college career. I'm on my toughest classes and every grade counts. I'm trying my best. 3.6 isn't too shabby.
Also, I'm LOVING my internship at Tempo Networks. I'm learning so much and get to be part of some great projects in New York and in all the Caribbean Islands. I'm planning on doing both my internships at Tempo. I can't think of anywhere else where I can have such a hands on experience in the real business world.
I have to say that these last quarters at Berkeley at definitely my favorite.
(Apparently, this is the official class of '09 hand sign. Cute, ain't it?)
