Bio: "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" Nelson Mandela I am the youngest child in my family to have completed and obtained a BA in Gender Ethnics and Multicultural Studies in Education. This is and will always be the greatest accomplishment because as a child of parents who worked in the agricultural fields, a college degree was very hard to come by. But I did not just stop there, I went on the pursue my BCLAD, bilingual teaching credential. And all that is awaiting that to be cleared is passing the RICA examination. Oh but I was left with a hunger for more education and I am in the process of obtaining my Masters Degree in STEM, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. I can happily say I am 3 quarters away from obtaining my Masters. For a family that has struggled very hard to make it in this country, I can proudly say that my parents move to the United States of America was the best decision they made because if it was not for that, I would not have been born in a country that allows me, a Mexican-American woman, to accomplish as much as I have. And the journey is not over, it is just the beginning.
