What made you choose Valencia College?
I had a difficult time trying to figure out where I wanted to go, and after denying scholarships to St. Johns University, Rutgers, and Johnson and Wales, I decided to go with something I’d be comfortable with and that was to go to Florida.
What is the inspiration behind your graduation speech?

How long did it take you to write your speech?
My speech took me about a week to write and another to polish it up
