Talent search helped increase my leadership skills as a student by providing me with opportunities to get involved. It helped me feel grateful of where I come from, my roots as a low-income, first-generation Latino student, and confidence of where I was heading in life. Today, I am economically, mentally, and emotionally independent and I am able to give back to the community that saw me grow, always with a seed of gratitude in my heart for Talent Search and those important mentors in my life.
