Happy graduation! I am so unbelievably proud of you for surviving four full years at Caltech and graduating with an impressive degree in physics. From the first time I met you there during spring break of our freshman year I knew you were going to have an entirely unique experience. We went to a Jurassic Park themed party where the students had constructed a life-size model of a t-rex. This was not your typical “college” experience, but you would make it your own in time. You brought so much more to the school than just your intellect; you brought your amazing personality and an ability to light up a room like no one else.
You’ve gone through so many tough times during the last four years and there have been too many times that I have wanted to fly out to save you. That being said, there have also been countless good times. You’ve made so many great friends, learned soooo much, and definitely left your unique Juju mark on the school.
I am so excited to be able to begin the next chapter of our lives together. You are going to make the most amazing teacher for Teach for America and we are going to absolutely kill it in the city. I am so incredibly lucky to have you as my twin. You are my rock and my best friend.
Own that stage today, Juju. Be thankful for the chapter you’ve just completed and look forward to your future with a bright smile.
