Today marks a new era for my family; being the first WOMAN and the first ONE to graduate...has been the most emotional experience I have ever gone through! I’m able to stand here today following my dreams because of my two grandmas!!! Their pain, their hard work, & their struggle... motivated me to not only do this for myself but to do this for them! I graduated TODAY, but this would have never been possible without my grandma’s!! So as I move forward with my future, I will continue to honor both of them through ever step I take. They made it possible for me, so I will continue to make them proud!!!
This past Tuesday I had the honor of speaking at Aim High’s annual fundraising gala. I was able to share my story if personal and academic growth and success that was fully supported by this free non profit program in the Bay Area that provides extracurricular activities, academic enrichment and community to low income students. Aim high believed in me and inspired me to become a teacher, they have given me the platform to teach middle school students for the bast 6 years and became the first space where I was able to see teachers that looked like me. In front of more than 300 people I was recognized and able to share my story: education is not simply on paper and it doesn’t come without challenges and heart ache. I dedicate this day and this moment to my Grandma, Dolores, who always pushed me to pursue my dreams and my education. She was a strong and brave woman who molded me into the woman I am today, I didn’t always appreciate her when she was here but every day I see how much we sacrificed for me and my sister. This is the future of education, I encourage all of you to represent our voices, youth of all colors and backgrounds matter and one day someone like you, is going to need YOU, to believe in them to push them to show them that success isn’t just for white people! We live in a racist and sexist country, yet we will CONTINUE to resist every single day. To strength and to power, Tump won’t transform education but he won’t stop me from doing it, little by little, step by step, from the inside out and from the bottom up. Thank you #aimhigh thank you Grandma and thank you to my sister @_raqueezy_ and my boyfriend for supporting me and to everyone else who continues to remind me of the woman I am becoming. Cheers to finishing up my undergraduate career soon, then off to grad school I go. #teacherg in the making!🌻 To all my past students, to all my future students, this is for you, you matter, you are important and you will be seen and heard.
