“Despite coming from a small town, you have the same potential as anyone else. It may not happen the first time around or it may take longer than you expect, but continue to chase your dreams until you achieve them. Everyone’s circumstances are different and everyone will have their own unique path; so stay motivated, strong, and patient while you work to achieve your goal. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, maintain a good support system, and don’t give up!” said Annette Escobedo.
