A few months ago I decided I needed a change.
I wasn't ready to change jobs or move, and the one thing that I kept coming back to was school.
I found a program at George Mason University, which is close to my house that was the perfect fit.
So after a few months of writing essays, bugging people for recommendations, and some intense waiting,
I finally heard back.
I was accepted!
I start my program, which is a Masters in Global Health at the end of January, and will spend the next 18 months working full time and going to school in the evening.
I'm so excited for the chance to really be challenged again and am so grateful for the opportunities that this will bring. It's the perfect way to start off 2012, which is going to be an incredible year!
