My final goodbye to ASU

By Rosanna Aguilera
On April 30, 2019

I spent the last three years of my life at the best school and best job I could ever imagine.

This is my last column for the Ram Page, ever. There are a lot of things I want to say, but I’m just so grateful for everything and everyone in my life. 
First, I want to thank my staff at the Ram Page. I have had so many great employees, but I was so blessed with the staff I had this semester. You guys have been my closest friends and I’m glad I got to know you all so well. I will miss you all the most. 

Next, thank you to my family for being there for me these last three years. I couldn’t have done it without your support. I was blessed with the most compassionate family I could ever ask for.

I would also like to thank my church family. You all are the reason I got to this place in my life. Thank you for building me and my family up and helping us grow my whole life. Thank you for believing in me.

I also want to thank the great staff here at ASU. The communication and mass media department is filled with faculty and staff who are so invested in their students. Thank you, Dr. Herman Howard for running such an outstanding department. I definitely picked the right major.

My next thank you is to Isaac Fraire, my boyfriend. There is so much I want to say to you, but I’ll keep it short and sweet.


Thank you for being my rock. You are my best friend and I am so lucky to have someone who believes in me more than I believe in myself. 
You see so much in me. You encourage me every day and you pick me up when I’m down no matter what.

Thank you for being the amazing man you are. I couldn’t have done it without you. 
My last thank you is the most important. I must express my gratitude to the Byrd family.
You are the reason I had the opportunity to even come to school. 

Thank you for investing in me all these years. You two are the reason I’m able to have a better future for myself. 
I could never express how grateful I am. I have had a rough life, but you took so much stress off my and my family’s shoulders.  
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I can’t say it enough.


I’m sorry if I left anyone out, but if you have been there for me at all in the last three years, I appreciate you. 
This is the end of the road. 

Thank you, Ram Page. It’s been a pleasure.
Graduation, I’m ready for you.
