I did it!!

The phrase, "If I can do it, anyone can" is used a lot. Some would argue it is cliche. Some may say it is overused. Every once in a while, something happens that shows that the phrase still has meaning.
After 3.5 years of hard work, weekly homework assignments, and a lot of stressful tests, I have earned my degree. I now possess a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management. I started when I was 36, and finished before I turned 40. I did it. During that time, I have balanced a full time job, a family, losing a dog to a long battle with lymphoma, and many other parts of life that come around. I pushed through. I did it. It wasn't easy, but I did it.
I would like to thank my family, my coworkers, my VMB brothers and sisters, and everyone else who supported me. Without you, I could not have accomplished this. Without you, it would not have happened.
Folks, In this case and For this accomplishment... It is really true. If I can do it, anyone can.

Can someone make this work? I want to show the pic of me in my cap and gown. I can't figure it out on my phone.
