Today I got the phone call that I had convinced myself was never going to come: I got offered a job where I will be working with regulating national banks. In three years I have literally tripled my starting salary and will be doing work that is challenging and will help me grow as a lawyer and a person. It feels like I won the lottery and that my dreams are coming true... and that is because they are. I am so grateful and overwhelmed by the fact that over a thousand people competed for this job nationwide and I got it. They picked me. They believed in me and are giving me a chance to shine. It just doesn't seem real and I don't know when it will. I really feel relief and gratefulness. Sheer gratefulness.
