Finally, I'd earned my master's degree in archival studies. But now I had to go out and start my career. What if I couldn’t make it work? The day before graduation I took a walk to calm my nerves. I wound up running into this huge pair of angels. “We are each of us angels with one wing,” the words above them read. “We can only fly embracing each other.” I couldn’t predict what would happen post-graduation, but I knew how I’d make things work out—with friends, family and God to help me.—Alexandra McNish, Los Angeles, California
