What are your goals or plans after graduation?

Go to Law School

What are the challenges and tradeoffs in pursuing higher education? Is it worth it?

Paying for tuition is one my challenges since my parents' income is low and I have two more sisters. The tradeoff is an opportunity to excel in my community and to have a better life than my parents. Yes, it is definitely worthy; the sacrifice, studying all night for the exams because I worked after school, choosing to do homework instead of hanging out with my friends. Everything is worthy.

How is getting a degree or certificate going to change your life?

It will give me the opportunity to provide something better to my future family, and my community. It will give the knowledge to overcome many challenges. It will not only change my life, but my children and their children's lives.

How are you going to use your education to make your generation the most successful ever?

I plan to become a lawyer and fight for a better community, to represent the Latino community in court and make a change in their lives.
