Steph’s Story – “Motivation and resilience are the keys to my success!”

July 10, 2019

Graduation is a special time of year at CLUES. It’s a time to reflect, to celebrate and to look forward to all that the future holds. Many of our youth participants are graduating from their high schools, colleges, and universities, and we are so proud to watch each of them go on to serve to the community long after they have left us. Wherever they go, they will always be part of the CLUES family.

Each CLUES student has a unique story to tell about the journey that brought them to graduation day. Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing several stories of students from all walks of life. There are those who have overcome profound hardships, those who are first-generation college graduates and those who have an established family history at CLUES. We celebrate the success of all our graduates and encourage you to read their stories as a way to inspire your own educational journey!

Steph is a first-generation Mexican American woman who graduated in her family. She will attend the University of St. Thomas—the first in her family to attend college- with a major in International Business. “For me to graduate is a new and exciting moment for my family because I will be the first woman in my family to graduate in high school and to go to college”, she said.

Please, watch her video below and discover more details about her journey to success!
