I was born in Lubbock, Texas. However, my parents are from a small town in Guanajuato, Mexico. Thanks to my parents’ hard work, I grew up in the U.S. with many opportunities my parents never had. I am proud to say that I am a first-generation college student.
When I visit my parents’ hometown, I see the sacrifices that people make every day to provide for their families. It made me realize how blessed I was to have been born in this country.
I enjoy working with Mrs. McDowell because I help people who have left everything behind to come to the U.S. to provide a better future for their family, just like my parents did for me.
