To the People.................

I have so many people that I love so dearly. I never get a chance to let them know how grateful I am to have them in my life so here is a to a new series in my blog life.....To the People! To the people I love, and care deeply for, thank you!

To the People...................
Four years ago I met an amazing girl Elizabeth Gonzales. Our college life began in the Summer Bridge Program, we both had just graduated from High school and ready to start our life at ASU. We took every class together that we could. She was my first college friend and it feel fantastic to be ending our chapter together. Liz you know how much I love you, thanks for getting me through college.

Today is the day...........

Today is the day my life begins.
Today I become a citizen of the world.
Today is the first step of changing the world
Today I become accountable to some other than myself and my parents
I become accountable more than my grades
Today I become accountable to the world, to the future to all the possibilities that life has to offer
Starting today my job is to show up wide eye and willing and ready for what......
I don't know for anything and everything
To take on life, to take on love, to take on the possibilities and responsibilities of creating a better tomorrow, not just for me but the future generations to come
Today my friends our lives begin and I for one cant wait!

Thank you to everyone who has supported me to be here today, standing and ready to open the next chapter in my life! I could have not done it with out you all. To my friends, mentors and family. THANK YOU!

It feels good to be an AHer

As the year comes to an end, I become closer and closer to graduation. Part of my passage is attending the American Humanics annually dinner. This year would be different from the pass two years. This year, I would be one of the recognized seniors. The last couple of years I have had the joy of dressing up with my girls, driving together, taking a million pictures and then hanging out after dinner.
This year dinner was absolutely different. My parents were invited, I received the senior frame gift and got to stand on stage a couple of times. I was very happy to have my parents there and have them meet the other side of my life, American Humanics.
I enjoyed the ceremony and was horned in wining an award for my leadership in AHMI. I received a plaque with my name and a donation in my name was given to AHMI for this year campaign.Patrick McWhortor from the Arizona Alliance of Nonprofit was our keynote speaker. He spoke about the transformation of the nonprofit sector becoming the center of the economy. It was a motivating speech to us seniors entering the sector during this economic crises.The overall experience of the annually dinner felt so surreal but it is the passage to graduation. I want congratulate the class of 2009 graduating seniors from American Humanics. May we all be apart of the good for the change in this world.

Enjoying life, waiting to graduate-
