@becauseofthem - Last weekend Ashley Williams was in full Black Girl Magic mode when she graduated with her Master’s Degree and Law Degree in the same week from two separate universities, in two separate states. On May 18th she received her Master’s degree in Political Management from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. and on May 20th she received her JD from the University of Pennsylvania. And it wasn’t a dual degree program.
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She began her Master’s degree at George Washington University in 2015 while working at the State Department as Special Advisor and Director of Special Projects to the U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues. . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I was really interested in beginning a program that would allow me to build upon my undergraduate degree, love for politics, and allow me to continue working. I knew I needed to grow. The Political Management degree at GW was perfect,“ Williams told Because of Them We Can.
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She was able to attend the program online with the option to attend classes in person when her schedule permitted. Not long after starting the program she applied to law school in pursuit of a life long dream.
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“That fall I also applied to law school, which had been a part of my plan since high school. Both of my parents are lawyers, and I admired them and wanted to follow in their footsteps.”
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Williams says her law school journey wasn’t easy. . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I faced rejections from schools during two separate admissions cycles—once while I was working at the White House and once while I was at the State Department—but I was determined to go.”
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She received a favorable letter from the University of Pennsylvania in January of 2016 and  started in the Fall of 2016, exactly one year after beginning her master’s program.
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“During my first year of school, I stopped my Master’s program so I could focus on law full time. The summer following my first year, I resumed my Master’s program and simultaneously did law and my Master’s until I completed my Master’s in December of 2018—which I did while I was studying abroad in Tokyo.” — visit

#mondaymotivation 📦 ✨ @becauseofthem - When 9th grader Ja’shon Lambert considered the outfit he would wear to see Marvel's Avengers Endgame, he determined that an Iron Man suit would be perfect. While there were many options online and in-stores, Lambert decided to create his own using cardboard and a hot glue gun.
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I was on Youtube and I saw people making costumes and after that I watched Iron man and I thought ‘what if I built an Iron Man suit’? But I was on a budget so I had to think of something that was cost effective and efficient so I thought to make it out of cardboard,” he told Because of Them We Can.

This was Lambert’s second Iron Man suit. He made the first one last year over the course of five months. His latest, which he finished over the weekend, took him just one month to complete.
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“For the first one I felt as if it was a little rushed because when I was making it we were in the middle of moving. I saw many flaws that could be improved in a new one so I decided to make another one. After school I would come home and immediately start working on it.” . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At 5’11” finding enough cardboard to cut and manipulate was a challenge. Thankfully Lambert’s mother, Monique Riley, found a solution at a local store in Sailsbury, North Carolina.
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“We went to the local Rent-a-Center. They gave him the big cardboard that came off of the washer boxes. When we told them what he was trying to do the guy shook my hand and told him to come back once he finished,” she said.
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lambert was hospitalized due to pneumonia and was unable to finish the suit in time for Endgame’s release. The delay pushed his completion to this past weekend and as promised, he went to the Rent-a-Center, dressed from head to toe as a reimagined Iron Man.
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“In the future I plan to do more creations as well as engineering and robotics to take the suits to the next level,” Lambert shared.
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While he says he would love to have a 3D printer to assist with his build out in the future, the experience — hit 🔗 in profile for full story and photos #Becauseofthemwecan
