Are you a high school senior or soon to be college graduate? It’s never too early to start thinking about graduation. Decorating your cap is the least you can do to show your heritage and demonstrate to America that Latinos are resilient in the face of adversity, educated and are contributing to the work force!
This is also the time to celebrate all the sacrifices, time, and hard work that was placed into getting this degree! It’s not easy being the first in your family to graduate from high school and college. A special quote by Cesar Chavez reminds us that we should not be afraid to rise to the top because we are more than capable of overcoming any challenge. “Once social change begins it can not be reversed. You cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore.”–Cesar Chavez
The more of us that graduate and go into the workforce, the more diversity we bring into our fields. Bringing our diverse backgrounds and stories into the workforce will only make it better and easier for other Latinos after us to follow in our footsteps. “Con ganas, si se suede!!”
