Being accepted into School for Advanced Studies was a dream come true. I first found out about the school in 7th grade thanks to my friend's brother and I knew since that day I wanted to attend SAS. To this day I can't forget the moment I checked my mailbox and saw the acceptance letter lying within the cluster of mail.

The journey through SAS was even better than I expected it to be. Despite the rigorous classes, SAS was full of fun experiences. Throughout the past two years I have formed more relationships with my teachers and counselor than I have my whole life, leading to an improved classroom experience. I have made countless friendships with people who are just as ambitious in their academic careers as I am.

These two years SAS has given me are ones I will cherish forever. They have taught me how to balance and manage my time wisely, and how to succeed not only in school, but in life as well. I will forever be grateful for the opportunity SAS gave me and will continue to make them proud of the man they have forged me to be. I will be attending Florida International University under the National Hispanic Scholar Merit Scholarship.
