Advice from a graduate

Well, here I am, I’ve finally graduated from a Bachelor of Business majoring in Public Relations (with a Marketing 2nd major). What a journey these past 4 years have been!  I managed to complete my personal goal of graduating with a GPA of 6 which felt so good to accomplish!
