My journey to the 30th Birthday (Part 7)

My first publication in the peer-reviewed international journal         

My research supervisor asked me to write a research paper and submit the abstract to him and he submitted it to the conference. 

I did that I submitted my abstract and it got accepted for the presentation at the conference. I could not go to the conference to present it but my supervisor went to present it on my behalf. We submitted the final paper and it was reviewed and accepted for publication. It was published in 2017.

In 2018 my thesis chapters were all finished but I struggled to get them reviewed. I felt stuck and hopeless but I told myself I will never give up I just have to find ways to get my research moving. I got myself a co-supervisor in 2019. I started to see progress and felt more in love again with my research. I wrote a research paper and attended two research conferences and presented my papers myself. Lamapisa conference 2019 and Essa conference 2019. It was my first time to present a research paper at the conference. I felt grateful, motivated and inspired again.
