I graduated!!🎓 #graduationday🎓2018 #ididit #happy #memories4evr😍

· she BELIEVED she could, so she DID · Please read! ❤ It hasn't been easy, but I never gave up. I got frustrated, but I kept going. Hard work pays off! A lot of people have told me, "but I heard it's hard to become a firefighter, especially so fast" after they hear that after not even 2 years (from the moment I knew what I wanted to do) I got hired as a firefighter. My response has been the same: I worked hard! Not that everyone else didn't/hasn't, but that I stayed consistent, I took all the necessary steps and more, and most importantly, I didn't give up! A lot of people get discouraged because it's a long process, but you've got to keep your eyes on the prize and never, EVER give up!! I am incredibly proud of myself for making it. I can finally say, "I DID IT!!! I MADE IT!" and it feels SO DAMN GOOD! #firefighter #livingthedream #Ididit!! #mostproudmomentofmylife #femalefirefighter #impartofthe4percent

4 days until I graduate from the #Kellogg School of Management and I learned the importance of opening what seemed like closed doors. In my prior post I spoke about my experience being rejected from Kellogg. It was a sad moment that made me stronger. I was not willing to take no for an answer. I ended up getting a tutor and learning how to correctly study for the GMAT. As a result, I increased my score my 100 points which is unheard of. I reapplied to Kellogg and prayed everyday that I would get accepted. Getting into Kellogg was not just about me. It was about showing the young children in my neighborhood what’s possible through hard work, persistence, dedication and grit. I remember being in #Atlanta getting ready to give a speech at another conference. I received a phone call from the Director of Admissions at Kellogg stating that I was accepted into Kellogg and how I would be starting school in a matter of weeks!! My heart dropped when I received this news because my dream was coming to fruition. In the beginning of my journey it seemed like my door to Kellogg was closed. But in reality God was preparing me for a bigger door to open. When I was younger my mom wrote the following two quotes on my office wall as an entrepreneur that said “your tomorrow is determined by the choices you make today” and “some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it.” Success does not always occur overnight but if you work hard enough and turn the noes into yeses, success will follow. I was admitted as the only African American in my class for 49 students. Think about that. I was the only one. And when I was admitted to Kellogg I vowed to leave Kellogg more diverse than when I started. That is exactly what I did. I will share more in my next post. 📷 by @sabrina_eagles

Holy mother of pearl!! My first day back in Bikram Yoga and I'm wiped. That was a long 1.5 hours. Not to worry body, a swim will help cool me off. #discipline #stretchyoga

Not only did I sweat enough for a Gatorade commercial, but I did it twice! There's always something to be proud of yourself for. Even if it's a ridiculous amount of sweat. Twice.😉 #quicksketch #scribbles #scribblesthatmatter #chihuahua #dogcartoon #doglover #gatorade #gatoradecommercial #workout #beproud #beproudofwhatyoudidtoday #coloredpencil #pen #mixedmedia #exercise #ididit #youcandoittoo #youcandoittoo💪

Today I did my 1 RM. I hit 213 jumping up 40lbs. I'm so proud of myself. Thank you to my gym sisters for your encouragement/support @kristenm211, @teejates . Thanks you Ken for hanging back to spot me. Thank you @ethosstrength916 for believing in me from day 1. I never thought in my life I would enjoy lifting and lifting heavy. Looking forward to my next PR. #teamethos #ethosstrong #Ididit #beastmode #gymlife #thatliftlife #beautyandbeast #backsquat #213 #healthybody #strongbody

"Its not who you are that holds you back, its who you think you're not." One year ago I was at one of the lowest points of my life. I couldn't eat. I couldn't sleep. I didnt know how to function right. I was lucky if I was hitting 85 pounds. The last few months I have finally been able to keep myself right around 105 to 110 and I dont think I've ever been so proud of myself. . . . #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid #ididit #transformation #progress #gaining #bodypositivity #bodycare #bodygoals #finally #walkingskeleton #gym #motivation #daybyday #weekbyweek #monthbymonth #improvement #healthy #doingmybest #igotthis #legday @h_and_i_nutrition_bismarck #vergefitness #depression #anxiety #overcome #proudofmybody #proudmomma #momoftwo #gained20pounds #workworkwork

FINALLY!!!! I passed my NCLEX and today was my first day of orientation as a cardiology nurse! ❤️❤️❤️ The past four years I lived with my nose in the books fighting for this degree. Balancing being a single mom, living on my own- supporting myself and my daughter, studying, and crazy clinical hours has been the most incredible challenge of my life. I owe so much to my friends, family, and professors who supported me along the way. I would not be here without you guys! I am forever grateful for you all ❤️❤️❤️ FINALLY I’m more than just a single mom. I BEAT THE ODDS! I worked extremely hard and earned a degree that not only I love but will support me & my mini me. I know one day my daughter will look up to me for all the hard work and dedication it took to get us here. ❤️❤️❤️ 📸: Amanda Blackford #medicine #rn #nurse #nursingschool #gymrat #bodybuilding #singlemom #supermom #cardiology #doctor #ididit #soccermom #nursing #gymmotivation #summer
