Throughout my life, I’ve heard people tell me that the bad people come from the South Side of San Antonio. I went into Communications so I can be that voice that’s telling future generations that you can be anything you want to be. Coming from the “bad side” of town doesn’t mean you won’t amount to anything. I’m proud of who I am, where I come from, and it will always keep me humble. In my senior year of high school I lost my father which forced me to work so I could help my mom pay the bills since she received government assistance. I’ve held a few jobs from working at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Furr’s Buffet, Speedy’s Chicken and finally settling at H-E-B. Working and going to school has been tough on me since my time is stretched but I've learned to manage my time whether it be waking up early before work to complete my classwork, or moving my work schedule around to do my part on a group project. I’m in my last year of college which I never thought would come. I’ve had a few setbacks, but that didn’t stop me from pursuing my goals.
