My sister Cristina graduated from the University of Massachusetts Boston this past weekend.  Our family is so proud of her hard work and dedication.  My sister and I were raised by a single mother who worked very hard and made sacrifices to provide us with opportunities. Because of our mom’s and grandmother’s (Bati) support, my sister and I have become the individuals we are today. Its sometimes easy to forget the obstacles our family overcame to get to where we are. I am especially proud of my sister because she supported herself throughout her academic carreer while helping my mom with bills to make ends meet.  It was tough, but traveling the road to success on foot makes you appreciate the fruit of the labor that much more.  I know that Cristina can achieve what she puts  her mind to and this recent success makes me very proud of her.  Good luck little sister!
