Why I'm Running
Education is the key to a successful and safe community. That has been my model for as long as I can remember. Having a great school system with excellent teachers is vital to Nevada’s future, and for the future of our children. I know this first hand, as my son and I both received an education in this magnificent state.
I was raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. My parents worked extremely hard to make sure there was food on the table and that my brothers and I were always taken care of. As immigrants, it was a tough road and I didn’t attend the best school or live in the best neighborhood. However, my parents always wanted a better life for us, as every generation wants a better life for the next. With hard work and perseverance, I became the first in my family to graduate college in the United States.
Raising a son as a single mother, I instilled in him what my parents taught me: I always taught him that education is key to a secure future. With hard work and dedication, he will be the second one to graduate college in our family.
Our history shows that good education is key and it should be afforded to all children, no matter their background. Every child is our future, not only the ones that can afford it. I will fight to improve Nevada’s education system. I will fight for our children so that all of them have the ability, opportunity, and confidence to pursue their educational goals. I ask for your support, your voice, and your vote for Assembly District 21.
