On the Cambodian rooftop eating a savory and fatty pork grizzle, rice, and egg lunch from the street I open my gmail to find that I have been accepted to DENVER UNIVERSITY’s JOSEF KORBEL SCHOOL OF INTERNATIONAL STUDIES!!!!
One of the top international relations schools on the Globe- #11.
This was the original school I started looking into when teaching in Thailand, and 3 months later, after spontaneously taking the GRE, rallying my mentors for recommendations, and researching international school lunch policy, I am very pleased to report all our work has paid off.
A tremendous thanks to Howard Fisher, Nikki Dand, Kris Wolcott, Darrin Grove, and Theresa Lehman for your support in my mission at Korbel and the accolades you shared with the admissions department. I will not let you down.
And to my family for standing behind my serendipitous leap of faith to quit my job, leave my comfort zone and see the world.
I am still waiting to hear back from CSU and Univeristy Of Colorado, Denver, but this opportunity and acceptance to DU confirms that I will be headed west soon.
If you believe in yourself, have an attitude that changes ordeals into adventures, and move forward altruisticslly one breath, one step at time you’ll create a truly enjoyable life in this world.
