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

Go for it! It’s a lot of work, a lot of money but college allows you to expand your knowledge, gain new skills, and network. Apply to scholarships. Also, pursue internships while in college as this may lead to so many more opportunities. College was the best investment I made in myself, and I highly recommend it. Remember that learning is a lifelong journey and it doesn't start or stop with college. Set goals and work towards them with discipline and grit.
