What message would you like to send to young Hispanics who are considering going to college? 

PLEASE GO! There is so much work that needs to be done and our culture needs to be exposed. Everyone’s journey and life experience will help others. We all have our struggles growing up, life isn’t easy but it’s beautiful. Picking the right career can be difficult but once you pick it the right one, college becomes easier because you begin to love what you’re learning and strengthening the inner skills you already have. Surround yourself with others that have the same goals as you do. Reward yourself for every step closer you do in obtaining your degree, “Don’t stop when you’re tired, stop when you’re done.”
