It was the IPED Winter Merienda. Fordham students officially have their graduation in May. But because most IPED students leave the city after the Fall semester, the program holds its recognition ceremony in December, partly for the students and partly for their family and friends. Needless to say I am very proud of everyone in my batch. Coming into the program with barely a background in Economics or PolSci, I would have been glad to just graduate. But by luck or by hardwork I got several recognition which I am shamelessly proud of mostly because I think it really belongs to my mom who has been very supportive of my every crazy decision in life. I was glad she could be there for the ceremony. Also, I made a little speech for our class and of course being the emo person that I am, I cried.
Here's part I, ya'll.
