After a year and a half of (virtually) working I find it bittersweet to say that this is my last blog post with you, our followers. Today is my last time at USC. Sharing my voice through your blog was this type of fun experience that is learning. I was in a position to find a desire for internet development and individual design/experience, and We have always been excited to express I am forever grateful for the time I’ve spent at USC and I can’t say enough about my personal and professional development while I’ve been here that I will be moving on to continue working in that field. The individuals who work right listed below are GREAT at what they do; you are all in good fingers. It’s especially inspiring to get results every day alongside peers who undoubtedly worry about this work. They’ve been colleagues, but I am honored to also phone them friends.

Carry this nature of learning with you once you have graduated and approach each day comprehending that there is always more to understand.

Complimentary Food Is Awesome
In reality, this is spending plan advice. I’ve discovered so I always take advantage of free food that I spend the most money on food every month. The mistake was made by me of using too long to find out just how to monitor my money. Like John Maxwell said, ‘Tell your cash where you should go alternatively of wondering where it went.’

Diversity Rules
I really like my workplace for many reasons; one of them is because of the various backgrounds of my colleagues. There exists an operating joke in the workplace we are (and we dress ON POINT) that we sometimes look like a United Colors of Benetton ad because of how diverse. But in every severity, being around my colleagues has triggered me personally for more information about other peoples’ experiences and perspectives. Discover to comprehend the huge benefits of diversity. You’ll be an improved frontrunner, community member, employee, employer, and human being.

Well, that’s it for me personally. To my pupils from Napa, Sonoma, Santa Rosa, Davis and the state of Washington, I am going to miss you dearly during travel period. It is truly been a pleasure serving all of you and in the terms of Ron Burgundy, ‘Stay classy and thanks for stopping by.’
