All in Diary

Graduate School: University Of Southern California Tuition Fundraising

Hello, my name is Daric Cottingham. I am a first-generation college student. While in undergrad I was independent and paid for college with financial aid and out of pocket by working numerous jobs; I will be graduating from the illustrious Prairie View A&M University on May 11th with a B.A. in Mass Communications. I decided to continue my education, and I applied to the top journalism program in the United States to pursue an M.A. in Journalism at the University of Southern California Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism. 

Daric's Diary: Peace

The past few weeks of this spring semester have been interesting. I’ve laughed, cried tears of joy and some of sorrow. I’ve never been more certain of who I am ... who I’ve become. I’m learning certain social norms are not for me, and it is NOT up to me to shrink myself to fit into others ideals of who I should be.

Daric's Diary: 2018 is Showing Promise

The year has started and is showing promise. So far, I have kept my word to do anything that makes me happy. I'm even learning to say "No". This year for me is about growth and building long term relationships with others that pour into me as I pour into them. I want to grow to spiritually, mentally, physically, and financially by taking it all one day at a time.
