Gabriela Ballesteros – 12th Grade, International Studies Learning Center
I want to be a registered nurse because I find it intriguing how the body works in sync and have a passion to help people; therefore, I want to work in the medical field.
My inspiration is my parents because they have sacrificed so much to make sure I stay focused in school. They have shaped me to be the person I am today and without them I would not know the value of hard work and perseverance.
My dream for a better L.A is to make sure students are acquiring the proper resources for school and to have them believe they can prosper in life despite their race and class.
