What was the best advice you have ever received? Who gave you the advice?

“Perspective is key to reap the most benefits of life.” I was given the advice by Mr. Beltran in class last year when we went on a tangent stemming from a lesson about The Great Depression.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In the next 5 years, I hope to accomplish earning my Bachelor’s in Computer Science. Also, I’d hope to be given the opportunity to work for a tech company in the San Antonio area at this point.

If you could invite 3 people to dinner (other than relatives), who would they be and why?

My top 3 picks would be Patrick Mahomes, Floyd Mayweather, and Shigeru Miyamoto to get some insight on what it takes to obtain greatness and ask them what legacy they’d like to leave behind. Also, I’d want to know how they obtained such a positive influence and ask how I could achieve the same effect.

Editor's Note: Teen of the Week is nominated by Alice ISD faculty and is selected by an Alice ISD faculty review committee. In the years past this recognition meant a chance to receive a scholarship from the Alice Echo - News Journal. However, due to the coronavirus and changes made to the Alice Echo - News Journal the scholarship is unavailable this year.
