Lizbeth Medina Graciano, this week’s Senior in the Spotlight, can sum up how she has earned an impressive 3.9 GPA in three words: “little by little.” Lizbeth moved to the United States when she was a sophomore and she said she was able to face many challenges by tackling them little by little.
“Coming here to the United States has been a drastic change since I had to leave my family in Mexico,” she said. “It has been a difficult decision however I knew that I had to come here to learn the language so that I could have more opportunities.
Lizbeth was born in the US but lived most of her life in Mexico. When she came back, she did not know any English. “When I first arrived, I didn’t understand anything, but little by little I began to understand and I adapted.”
“I think it is very difficult to learn a new language,” she said. “However, with the help here, it got easier and then little by little I noticed that I was learning.”
At this point, Lizbeth has mixed feelings about graduating. “What excites me most about graduating is that I can say to myself ‘I did it’ and be able to tell my parents that it is possible. What scares me is that I still don’t know what I want to be in my life.”
Most likely, she will figure it out little by little.
