Diamond L. Moses
My name is Diamond Moses and I am a 22 year old Chemsitry/ pre-medicine major from Covington, La. I was born on July, 8 1993 in Baton Rouge, La. I attended high school at St. Scholastica Academy in Covington, La and I will be graduating from Southern University and A&M College of Baton Rouge. My future plans within the next year or so, is to attend PA school. I plan to continue learning and seeking guidance from God because I know that the plans he has for my life are far beyond my own expectations
I am ecstatic that I have finally reached this major milestone in my life. I am thankful to God, my family, and friends for the constant prayers and motivation to get me through this phase of life. I have honestly learned so much over the past 4 ½ years. I love the woman who I have become; a woman of knowledge, power, and compassion. Attending an HBCU was probably one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have grown to love my culture even more than I’ve ever before.
“Before attending college, I grew up in a single parent household.”
My mother did an exceptional job of raising me with the help of family, friends, and church members. I never lacked for anything. This was my main motivation that got me through my matriculation at Southern. I have had so many people (some who I don’t even know) help me along the way and I feel as if I have no choice but to pay them all back. This degree isn’t just for me. This degree is for everyone from my family and community who believed in me and my potential. Sometimes I didn’t even see this potential in myself. To anyone who ever faces self-doubt, or just feels as if they cannot live up to a standard, just remember that God had a purpose for your life before anyone had an opinion! Just be the best you, you can be…perfect yourself! We only get to live this life once so its best that we make it count. Find your passion, find your motivation, and explore your purpose. The possibilities are literally endless.
Diamond L. Moses is graduating May 13th from Southern University and A&M College.
