I confidently opened the white twelve by fifteen inch envelope with Stedman College of Medicine emblazoned on the middle in big bold letters. The large envelope was always a good sign, since rejection letters were sent in smaller envelopes. The letter said what I hoped for and expected: “Congratulations Fadesola Cardoso, you have been accepted into Stedman College of Medicine.”
I stepped into the next four years of my life with a little trepidation, naivety and optimism. I wonder what I would have told a younger Fadesola at that moment. Truthfully, I don’t know what I would have told a younger me.
She would not understand anything I had to say.
But that day, prodded with the excitement of an uncertain but certainly bright future, she took a leap of faith.
We all took a leap of faith.
