I got this email and screamed! My co-workers down the hall got concerned for me and then cheered when I told them why I'd screamed.
It still blows me away to see myself addressed as "Dr." In person, I rarely respond to it because I don't even hear it - I don't register it as part of my name.
I emailed all my mentors to thank them for their support and guidance. They were all proud and immediately told me to go on to the next one.
I will! But first some champagne :)
On December 11, 2003 (exactly 13 years ago), my mom died from complications of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. She would have been beyond proud to read this email, to know how far I'd come, and that her sacrifices had paid off.
This is my first peer-reviewed publication - finally!
I'm a late bloomer sometimes.
Moving on to the next one...
