A word one hears a thousand times

when in school


Growing up with monolingual Spanish speaking parents, I felt disadvantaged due to

their limitations

My parent’s ability to participate and support my academics has been an obstecle

for them and myself


Their resilience has been a blessing they have passed on

to me

It has been an

inspiration and motivation for me

to suceed


I have become an outspoken individual who has learned not to be

afraid of looking beyond what’s presented and

accomplish my goals


A dream I have

to be in marketing

to travel the world

and help those in need


Sweat, ideas, and organization 

all for the higher education


Time is ticking

9 weeks and I graduate to go to
