Entry 0247

Yesterday, April 5th 2010 AD, Nadia presented her Thesis Defense… and was, for all intents and purposes, awarded her Masters in Public Health.

It was pretty darn exciting, really – she’d been planning this event for week, going over her presentation many times a night, worrying over the choice of snacks for those in attendance, and most importantly: fearing failure.

I never once thought that failure was going to be the result of her study – she knew it cold, she was able to present it very well, and it was both very interesting and while also presenting new data, and new takes on existing data.

I am very happy for her, she truly earned it.
