Elva had a great deal of respect for Apá, who tried his best to provide for his family. From the early years of Elvas life, her father always showed the significance in which education played for his children. He ensured each of his six children where to graduate high school; something in which himself, and very few other Mexican Americans were not able to achieve. He ensured this was possible by conveying a great deal of emphasis on the importance of education. Every year, Apá and the family would return from the farms a month earlier than when the farming season finished.
Throughout my life, 4-H has made an impact by shaping me into the person I am today and leading me on the path to become who I want to be. I have been given many opportunities to broaden my horizons, develop critical life skills, and make experiences that will always be with me. I was raised in the small town of Milan, Michigan. As I grew older, I heard so many stories about my father’s experience in 4-H. I wanted to have the same opportunities to experience what he did through 4-H. At the age of 6, in late 2004, I took part in my first 4-H project, the Protégé horse program in Washtenaw County where I was able to borrow my mentor’s horse for show.

“Foundation of Family” Family is the fundamental building block of all societies. It is all inclusive across generations and cultures. Based on the epic poem The Odyssey and current families today, we see that family is where we learn to love ourselves and each other, to bear one another’s burdens, to find meaning in our life and to give purpose to other’s lives, and to feel the value of being part of something greater than ourselves. Family is where we experience our biggest triumphs, deepest vulnerabilities, and where we have the greatest potential to do good. The love of a family is life’s greatest blessing.
Ethics is the most vital tenant in the human services. On the contrary, I must remain balanced and focus when my future client’s values do not align with my own.

Being born and raised in a third world country, me and my family didn’t always have everything we wanted nor the opportunity to change our circumstances. Nevertheless, we had each other and we were more than content.
