I graduated from Oberlin and I still can't believe it. This is a short letter to myself and a lot of "thank yous" to faculty and staff who changed my life at Oberlin. Thank you all so much.

I spent the first week of November in Boston, touring Harvard Divinity School as a Diversity & Explorations program participant, and attending the school's first Black Religion, Spirituality, & Culture Conference. But wait, this is the blog platform I write for Oberlin, where does Harvard come in? This is the story about how Oberlin got me to Harvard. (Maybe.)
