Thanks for the hug

It was my first day in graduate school and I had some questions: Will it be fun? Will it be difficult? Can I handle it?

I was sitting in the bus, with my sister, Ate Win. We talked about our new chapters in life–her new job as a lecturer and my new endeavor as a graduate student. We were both excited and nervous because we do not know what to expect.

Before going down the bus, my supportive sister hugged me tightly. That warm hug made me feel empowered and reminded me I am not alone. Thanks for that hug!
