I am a CIA alumni with a Culinary arts degree

On the 3rd of July, it was a nice sunny morning when i was awarded the Assoicates degree from the prestegious Culinary Institute of America. I was overwhelmed by different emotions. It was the day of my graduation, that i had been waiting for a long time.

It was a hard for me to imagine that i would be studying in this prestegious college that has produced some eminent personalities in the culinary world. The dream came true as my whole family supported me throughout the process. It was a hard decision that i had to make when my daughter was born, and was just 1month when i had to tell my wife and daughter that i will have leave for my education. My wife understood the reason behind the decision, which would be just nothing without her support. The money i had saved through the years that i had worked in the cruise line industry, was not even enough for the 1st semisters fee. My brother, sister-in-law, Sister, brother-in-law were the people who financed my education, without whom this would not be a reality. My parents gave me all the moral support. My wife took good care of my daughter during my absence. It was all these emotions that had filled my heart and mind as i walked to receive the medal of honor from the president.
