My best kept secret. Only a handful of my family and my closest friends know! All this time I was a FT student! I am graduating Magna Cum Laude 🙌🏽 I owed this achievement to my son, myself and my family! The last year and a half I survived on coffee! I am working FT, manage a business , somehow went on vacations (with laptop in hand!), enjoyed motherhood, cancelled on EVERYONE 🙈 in the name of this degree!!! It took me a LONG TIME but I did it! I managed and I conquered! Not only am I graduating - I am doing it with honors! Thank you to all those that have helped me!!! I still have 3 wks of class left! 😩 But I just couldn't continue hiding my excitement! Plus look at my cap!!! It's the most beautiful cap ever!!! #mexican #latina #graduationcap #educatedlatina #magnacumlaude #sinmiedo #immigrantwithadegree #paramifamilia #formyson #arribalasmujeres #mitu #gradcap #latinagraduate #mastersisnext #latinogradcap #chingona #educatedandpetty #AUGrad18

Hoy salté de bungee y sobreviví. En unas horas voy a cumplir 22 años. Estoy emocionada a pasar mi cumpleaños en un País tan hermoso como Costa Rica 🇨🇷 estoy muy agradecida por todo lo que Dios me ha dado. Te extraño cada día apá, y ojalá que usted era aquí conmigo pero yo se que ya estás con Dios. Te quiero mucho apá. Te prometo que un día voy a hablar contigo en español. Todavía no puedo creer que estoy aquí en Costa Rica estudiando español y haciendo toda las cosas que yo he hecho! Yo se que Dios me ha bendecido con todas estas nuevas amigas maravillosas! 💗🎉 #puravida #costarica #studyabroad #birthdaygirl #birthdayweekend #birthday #cancer #spanish #espanol #july #julybirthdays #model #beach #summer #summer2018 #college #sororitygirl #sigmakappa #travel #paramifamilia #solmates #solmatesforlife #ucr #ucriverside #rside #ucrstudyabroad #livewithheart #oneheartoneway #beachmodel #personalgrowth

So, we found this twin bookcase headboard, footboard, and rails at @chkd_kids thrift store in @hamptonva for $10. It was poorly stained brown when we found it.
Well, we bought if for our niece who is staying with us, who is half Puerto Rican, half Mexican...
So, technically, she's a #borixican !
And since she's from @chicago and is a big fan of #graffiti ...
We now have a pretty sweet headboard with a nice background color and a sick, 3-color tag with my new favorite word...
Borixican!

My parents commitment to give us a better opportunity in life is what pushed to me to get through this and strive for more. The last few years as an undergrad at CSUF allowed me to grow as an individual and see the world from a new perspective. This new perspective opened my eyes to disparities that affect communities of color and sparked my interest in learning more about why these disparities exist and why it is important for us to dismantle them. This chapter in my life  would not have been possible without the support I have from my family and loved ones and I will forever be grateful for them. Next grad school!🎓🙏🏽 #csufgrad #csufalumni #educatedchicano #educatedlatino #chicanx #educationispower #knowledgeispower #sonofimmigrants #chicanostudies #communicationstudies #chicanopower #woke #paramifamilia #paralaraza #latinx #latinxgrads

Sappy post but hey whatever. Almost four months ago we ran into each other at footie and life hasn’t been the same since. I told you about all the shit I was dealing with and it sparked a fire inside you to help me become great. “I believe in everything you do and I want to watch you grow into the best Miguel anyone has ever seen.”
You keep me humble,you share wisdom beyond your age,and you just make me think about life in ways I never thought I would. Thanks for being you,and thanks for randomly buying me a book that’s changed my perspective on shit even more. Here’s to you,my Colombian brother. I can’t wait to visit the motherland in December. Surround yourself with those that want to see you grow,they’re the best friendships you could ask for.

Life has been crazy the last couple months. The gym, family, Bailey, etc. Things just kinda happened where I sat back and I asked myself " What the fuck just happened? ". I found myself being my own worst enemy. If you knew me in my early 20s, I wasnt a very good person. Selfish. Cared very little about others. Full of excuses. I hit a point where I had to make a change and the past few years I've been really blessed with an awesome life having a great career running my own business, loyal friends, healthy and supportive parents, travelling, Bailey, etc. Last couple months I found myself acting like the young me. Difference between now and then, I know now to check myself and say " Get your shit together FAST. " 
The Elephant has always been my fighting spirit animal. It's a symbol of strength, power, mental faculties, loyalty and peace. For a while there I lost sight of those accolades and what seemed to be great on the outside, wasnt very good on the inside. I got this Elephant tattoo today to remind myself to stay synonymous with everything the Elephant represents. I'm thankful for the last couple months. I've survived 100% of my worst days. Dont worry. Be happy. Remove hate permanently... " If you cannot find a good companion to walk with, walk alone, like an elephant roaming the jungle. It is better to be alone than to be with those who will hinder your progress. " 🤙🐘

I have absolutely no idea how I am supposed to feel... All I know is that at 16 years old, when I had my first child, I knew I had to obliterate statistics. This feat is dedicated to my grandparents and their ancestors. This feat is dedicated to future generations to come. I am part of the less than 2% of teen moms to go on to get a Masters and because of this, no one in my lineage will ever be a statistic. #salud #educated #latina #firstinmyfamily #proud #ididit #msw #pavedtheway #ucla #doublebruin #dasit #paramifamilia #brownpride #sisepuede

Congrats to my graduated brother and his underdog roots being able to conquer and overcome adversity. Coming from a community of gang violence and our minority background of being Mexican/Puerto Rican, he’s one the few to say he did it for “La Raza”. He overcame obstacles and hardships such as homelessness, and managed to conquer. He’s a first-gen grad and I couldn’t be any more proud of my brother and I’m glad you have the strive to overcome plenty and more. You have plenty following in your footsteps! Way to be a pioneer! ❤️🖤❤️🖤 @donlouiesont._.t #firstgengrad #paramifamilia #latinograd #educatedlatino #LatinxGradCaps @undocumedia

Yesterday was truly a dream come true for me and I still can’t believe it happened! After 5 very long years, I finally graduated DePaul University with my Bachelors in Sociology! I am so proud to say I graduated Cum Laude, especially because the journey getting here was certainly not an easy one. There were so many moments where I wanted to give up and where I doubted myself tremendously. At one point during my college career, I had three jobs.. (one of which was a Resident Advisor on campus), was affiliated with a sorority that I truly could not afford, a leadership member of a volunteer group AND had a full course load of classes. I had a falling out with close friends and felt very alone despite knowing so many people. The weight of all these obligations and personal issues took a toll on my mental health and as a result of so much stress, I struggled with depression and anxiety. Ultimately, I failed a quarter at DePaul and was forced to move back home and take some time off school. During this time, I felt weak, embarrassed and ashamed of myself. I saw everyone around me graduating and accomplishing so many amazing goals. Without my family and Ray, I don’t know if I would’ve gotten out of that mindset. They supported me, pushed me, guided me, and most importantly, showed me immense love and understanding. Because of them I was able to return to school and bring my 2.5 GPA to a 3.6! This degree is not only for me, it’s for them! I am the first in my family to graduate college, I am a minority, I am a daughter of immigrants. This is my story. 👩🏻‍🎓✔️💕🇲🇽🇵🇷 📚

The last three years of nursing school have not been easy, but I am happy so say I made it through with pride and perseverance. I could not have done it without the sacrifices of my parents who risked their lives for me to attain #theamericandream, or without the love and support of my family. Esta es para mis padres y mi familia, con su apoyo vuelvo mis metas una realidad. 💜👩🏽‍🎓👩🏽‍⚕️ #firstgenRN#paramifamilia

Para mí familia 🇲🇽 I don't think I'll ever be able to repay my family for everything they've done for me. All of their hard work and sacrifices have been so worth it, even when obstacles and hardship gets in the way. It is thanks to them that I am able to follow my dreams and pursue a career here in the U.S. Everything I do is for my parents, my sister, and my beautiful Latino community. I am so thankful for the wonderful support system I have!! And of course, my graduation cap wouldn't be complete without Frida 🖌 FINALLY GRADUATING TONIGHT 🎉 #latinxgradcaps #paramifamilia #classof2018

I can finally say I graduated from Hunter college this year. It has been a journey filled with hard work, anxiety, joy, and most of all determination. One with unconditional support from my family and leaning on God each step of the way. I can proudly say that I am a hunter Grad with a 3.9 GPA, member of Psi Chi and Golden key club. All the glory unto God 🎓

Looking back at the past five years I can’t help but be overcome with emotion. I’ve made it so far but I will always remember where I came from. All the adversities I faced as a child shaped me into the person I am today. Coming from a single immigrant mother was never easy, for the most part my siblings helped raise me because my mom was always working, we lived crammed in a tiny apartment because that’s all my mom could afford at the time. Needless to say all of this fueled my ambition to pursue a higher education and put me on the path I am on today. I am so grateful for everyone I’ve met along the way, I have taken everything as a blessing or a lesson. To say I have gone through hell and back for this degree is an understatement. This is for my family, for the motherland🇲🇽, for the ones who came before me and for the ones I am setting an example for. B.S. in Health Science Preclinical Preparation Option...Masters I’m coming for you💁🏽‍♀️💉💊🎓 .

And so, four years later I graduate with a dual B.A in Speech Language Pathology and Audiology and Psychology. Obtaining these degrees has been a long and stressful journey (all thanks to my speech courses🙄) but it has been rewarding. It has taught me a lot about myself and how dedicated and determined i am. I now know what’s my passion and so this journey is just the beginning. This chapter is ending but the story never ends.

Started at #EDCLV2018 in the one and only #Vegas and after 4 days away from home I touched down in #SanJose for 3 days to finish #finals and #graduate! Morning after graduation I was off to #CaliRoots with some of my favorite people in the entire world! It has been a crazy week but one of the happiest I can ever remember! It’s been an honor being a part of the #Insomniac #dreamteam and #WVC! I am so happy to hang my #Vikings hat up and start planning my journey as a #Spartan! Thank you to all those who have supported my dreams and aspirations in life no matter how crazy they seemed! I wouldn’t be here without y’all! Peace, love & sick beats!✌🏽🖤🔊 #GizmoGigs #baybabe #newchapter #graduationweek #partyhardworkharder #ididit #WVC2018 #SJSUbound #businessadministration #euntrepreneur #imouthere #livingmybestlife #beautybrainsandbrawn #lookmaimadeit #latinapride #paramifamilia #justthebeginning

a little late, but I’ve just been trying to take it all in. It’s been a long journey and along that journey I met amazing people that I will forever be grateful for.  This one goes out to my mom, my brother and my grandma that are watching over me from heaven. Thank  you everyone who’s been there since the beginning, and has seen my struggle to make this possible. This is just the beginning 😎 #thankyou #CSUSM #collegegrad #makingmamaproud #paramifamilia #latepost

I just wanted to take the time to thank everyone for celebrating my graduation with me this past week. I especially want to thank my parents for all their love and support. To my daughter who is my constant inspiration. To my siblings and sister-in-law for always encouraging me. And to my whole familia, each and everyone of you has played a part in helping me to grow into the woman that I am today. And for that I want to say thank you for everything and I love you all. #classof2018 #ididit #sfsugrad #educatedlatina #paramifamilia

La familia es la brújula que nos guía. Es la inspiración para llegar a grandes alturas, y nuestro consuelo cuando fallamos. Aún no tengo las palabras exactas para decirles lo agradecida que estoy con Dios por permitirme llegar hasta este momento. Le doy gracias por darme la dicha de tener unos padres quienes siempre, sin ninguna duda, me apoyaron y creyeron en mí. El amor, sus consejos, comprensión y el trabajo diario no fueron en vanos. La educación es lo más valioso que ustedes quieren para nosotros y por eso esto no termina aquí. #CSULB #ParaMiFamilia #SiSePudo #LoHicimos 💪🏽👩🏽‍🎓👏🏽❤️🌊
