Our presence at this moment
matters more than you imagine.
Our voices at the table allows us to speak and let la mundo listen to us.
I wish that I can go back into time
to find someone who looks like me
and who has la misma lengua de idoma like me.
But once we head out,
to the real world of jobs,
our presence, our voice
and our representation matters.
In the careers you head out,
you might be the first in that space or department,
and that is a miracle!
You can be the first
and can be the role model
that you wished you had five or ten years ago.
your representation in class helps others to say
"Si se puede!"
or to ponde las pilas to finish
you will leave a legacy behind.
Si, ay dias que son difisi
pero if you give up,
who is going to represent you
when it is needed the most?
Cuando vas in your career,
you may see hard work,
pero por alegan
they may see a role model
and an inspiration to be like you,
y un dia,
they will thank you for your representation.
Aqui estoy presente,
no por una hora,
pero para simpre!
