Thank you for taking time to read Part II of this blog post to help celebrate the success of Brandon Wright, Class of 2020 Felician University Graduate. Here's what his sister, Ebony wanted to share.
"When I learned that Brandon was looking to further his education I was ready to journey with him. Supporting wasn't always easy, but with the help of God, we made it. We are grateful and blessed.
Having a positive mindset helped guide his on this journey. I always told him to keep going and work hard. He always studied and was eager to learn. He was always proud when he accomplished his goals.
I've always tried to give him what I know. While Brandon lived on campus we stayed in touch through FaceTime and phone calls. He would come home every couple of weeks to stay for a weekend and sometimes he would stay on campus to study and get more work done. Sometimes I would bring him a care package with his favorite meals and snacks just to make his smile.
While he was away working my focus was making sure he was safe at school and in a great environment. As long as he was, OK, I was OK. If I could have shared words at Brandon's graduation I would have told him you CAN be whatever you want to be in life. You CAN go where you want to go as long as you stay consistent. You make me so proud to be your sister. I pray for your future and I see GREATNESS inside of you!! With Love, Your Sister, "Ebony".
We wanted to give Brandon an opportunity to share and give a shout out to family, friends and Felician University Class of 2020 classmates.
"Felician University without you guys motivating me in every way possible and providing me with so many great opportunities I'm not sure if college would have been such a smooth process. I would like to give a shout-out to the business professors for keeping it brutally honest on how the work world works. Letting us know when you're not the only person who want a six figure job out of college, being different matters and having a great work ethic can outlast your competition.
Furthermore, I've met some great souls while studying at Felician University, too many to name. However,
I appreciate everyone I was able to make memories with that will last a lifetime. Additionally, I would like to express words of appreciation to my family and closest friends. You motivated me and pushed me to keep going throughout my entire four years. I can't thank you enough nor would I trade you for anything.
I am extremely grateful to have all of you in my life and I know anyone else in this world would be too.
Out of everyone, I want to give the most credit to my sister, Ebony Wright, for being the mother figure in my life for almost have of it. Words can't explain how much I appreciate you.
But one day I will find a way to express it in the most beautiful way ever. But until then, I just want to say, even though our mother hasn't been with us for sometime now, she sure did a substantial job raising me into a great young man she would be proud of.
Congratulations again Brandon and Ebony! We pray God's richest blessings over your life as you work towards the fulfillment your dreams. Reach your greatest potential and fulfill your life purpose. We are extremely proud of this milestone. We believe great doors will open for you in the marketplace!
Wishing you great success!
