Welcome and Bienvenidos!
It's been a long journey that led to my decision to run for USD 500 school board. When I was six years old, my parents brought my sister and me to Kansas City, KS from our home country of Guatemala, beginning a new chapter in my life.
Soon I was in school, making friends, and learning much. My parents always emphasized the importance of education, telling me "people may be able to take away material things, but they can never take away your wisdom and knowledge.”
Yet, there were many challenges along this journey. By fourth grade I was interpreting for my family, a responsibility many immigrant children in our community share. Nonetheless, there were many opportunities also. With the support mentors, friends, family, and the entire community I was able to persevere and graduate from the University of Kansas.
Since then, I was eager to return to Wyandotte County and invest in a community that invested in me. I'm a product of USD 500 schools, and I know both the challenges as well as the great potentials. Together, I'm more certain than ever that we can ensure our students and our community thrives, showing the world the unique talent that exists in Wyandotte County.
