I would just like to take this moment to express
my gratitude to both Mr. Zaffirini and Senator Zaffirini for their continuous efforts to
support students like myself in continuing their education. It is an incredible honor to be the first one
to receive this this recognition. And to be able to represent my university
through this award. I would also like to thank Ms. Jasmine Gerbo.
for nominating me. Her continuous support and um guidance is
just um imperative to my success here at TAMIU. And I’m just really grateful uh to this university
to both like I said Mr. Zaffirini and Senator for believing in me and showing
me their support. My graduation date is getting closer and closer. I’ll be graduating next year in special education. That’s my major. I would love to continue my education uh apply
to a graduate program here in the university and um of course the also I’ll teach, so I’ll
do both–continue my studies and teach here in a local school. But um those are my plans for the future and
I’m just really excited.
