Graduation Speech 2017



Good Afternoon Dr. Cornejo, distinguished guests, teachers and class of 2017.  We are so proud and happy to have reached our goal.  I would like to thank all those teachers and administrators who helped us get to this day.


Getting to graduation has not been easy because life is tough.  For example, I didn’t grow up having Jordans, gold chains or money to show off on Instagram.  I didn’t even have my parents with me.


My parents came to this country as teenagers and here is where my brother and I were born.  I don’t have my parents with me because they didn’t stay.  I have lived with my grandparents since I was 6 years old.


A parent doesn’t have to be the ones who gave birth to you.  A parent is the person who shows love to you, defends you, and guides you.  My grandparents, my aunts, uncles, teachers, and Staff at Reid have become my parents.


People say Reid is for dumb students and all kind of other putdowns.  We, the class of 2017, are proof that what others say is false.  I am an 11th grader who finished earning my credits in March and now I’m graduating with everyone else.  I had all A’s, did all my work, and even did extra credit to finish earlier.  It’s never too late to graduate and it’s never too early.


Reid is smaller than a regular high school, but it has so much more love and respect for others.  Teachers are on our side and make the school year better.  At Reid, there is less drama and less fighting.  If I was to rate our school, I would give it 5 stars because I have learned things I never learned at other schools.  For example, I was taught to express myself freely in my writing, how to go to college, how to apply for aid, and now I can show others that anything is possible.


Well we have a past and we all have a story about why we’re at Reid.  Many of us have been through difficult struggles and challenges that made us feel like there was no tomorrow.  Behind my smiles each day growing up there were tears.  Not growing up with my parents has made me strong.  I’m blessed to have people like my grandmother who is there to pick me up when I’m down.


Reid has given me some of the most valuable lessons.  It has shown me that we don’t need looks, riches, or have to act like someone we are not to be accepted.  Instead, it has given me wonderful friends that make me smile and make me laugh every day.


Despite the arguments that we overcome with family members, friends, and sometimes teachers, there will always be people who would say, “Pursue you dreams and never give up.”  My Uncle Jaime has always told me “No deses ser como una persona, porque si la persona no estuviera en este mundo, que harias?”  Don’t wish to be like anyone else because if that person didn’t exist, who would you be?  I am original just like every single person in this world.  You are original as well.  My parents or any other person doesn’t define me.  We are not different, we are unique and different pieces make the puzzle more fun.
