Iliana Carranza
Class of 2013

Being Mexican-American, the odds are stacked against me. Despite the statistics, I am successfully thriving academically and in life. I am proud of who I am because it has made me a stronger woman with the ability to overcome any obstacles that come my way. Thanks to my family, I have the motivation and ambition to continue accomplishing my goals and to inspire others to do the same.
