NAME: Dr. Amy Johnson
I bet you didn’t think you’d ever get here, huh? Especially with that last semester. But you did it! You persevered and you should be proud of yourself. I am so happy for you. I hope you look back on your time in the AGI with fondness and that you learned at least something in my classes. More importantly, I hope you learned about yourself and what you do and don’t want in your life. Remember what I always say, don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Learning what doesn’t work for you is just as important as learning what does.
I hate that your last semester was interrupted by all this, but at least there weren’t zombies…..right. Good luck with everything and if there’s anything I can ever help you, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
