Last Monday 1st of February the day finally arrived and I could celebrate that I was graduating for my MA in Events and Exhibition Management at Birmingham City University (BCU).
It was a very important day for me, even that I had to wait a year after I finished my dissertation for the ceremony (when the FT students finished was too late for being at the ceremony in 2009), but that made that most of the people who started the MA in 2007 we could graduated together. Besides that, my mom could come from Colombia for this great moment, and finally someone from my family could see my other life, the life that I have here as foreign in England. Plus the person who made possible that we could have the best MA ever and put together all those amazing 14 future Events Managers could come and see us graduated. Thank you very much Mathilde Stein for teaching us so much and also be a mentor for us in our future as event professionals.
Here is a picture of us, already as Masters in events.
