The ceremony last night has left me speechless. I have no words for how meaningful and memorable the ceremony was for me. I hope to one day have my kids join AVID and have the same experience. In my last to years here it was taught me to trust and have determination. I am taking these skills with me throughout high school and I will be able to become a successful person in my life. When I handed my promise letter to my father, I bursted into tears.
