Alejandra Paredes (2011 NY College Tour)

June 16, 2011

I participated on the New York and Washington college tours. When I gave the news to my parents that I was chosen to attend a New York college tour they were shocked and excited for me because of the opportunity that was given to me. There were anxious for me to travel outside the state and travel to beautiful places like New York and Washington. My parents were very thankful with Ms. Regina and with the center because among our society there are still organizations like EOYDC that supports education and helps the youth by given them a broader view of different colleges and education. My parents were mainly amazed because it was going to be my first time to travel in an airplane. When I was chosen for the second time for the Washington college tour my parents were proud of me once again because I was chosen for my hard work and my dedication at the center. They were proud to have a daughter that was accomplishing great things in life. My parents would always be thankful to EOYDC because thanks to these two college tours I’m a young woman with knowledge and experience. I’m a Latina student that is pushing herself to stay in college and be successful.
