Class of 2013

I am Amanda Armendariz and currently a club leader intern with Latinitas. This is my first semester with the program for fall 2011. I attend El Paso Community College and plan to transfer to UTEP to complete my education. I love working with children and teaching them something new every day. I plan to graduate from UTEP with a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies. My dream is to become an inspiring teacher, teaching children new things every day and watching their astonished faces. I have always said that I want to make a difference in someone’s life for just one day and I know when I become a teacher, I will. College is important to me, having an education opens up more opportunities that will allow me in becoming a successful citizen and role model to my younger sisters. An education rewards you with a good a career, great benefits and able to make life time investments. The opportunities that Latinitas has given me, has only made me a better person by teaching what I have learned in my classes and sharing it with the members, is unbelievable for me. Not only am I gaining the experience to compliment my field of study, but I am also getting rewarded with an educational stipend to help me fulfill my goal in becoming a teacher. It’s not always about the stipend but what I gained from the experience. Many thanks to all of the Latinitas staff for allowing me to be a part of this wonderful program. It takes a lot of work and dedication for a program to run smoothly, and Latinitas does. I really enjoy working with the friendly staff. I would also like to say thank you to our sponsors for supporting this educational club, Latinitas. Our community needs sponsors that will make future leaders successful. Once again, Thank You, you made it happen. Sincerely, Amanda Armendariz
