Great story! “I wanted to share that joy with someone, but honestly, I had no one to share it with,” don’t feel bad. When I was working towards my undergraduate degree and my graduate degree I had no support, zero support from anybody including my own family. So I skipped the ceremonies and had my degree mailed to me.

Having nobody to be happy for me kind of killed the experience and hard work.
