My name is Areli Martinez, I was born in Irapuato Guanajuato, Mexico. My family and I migrated to the United States in 2004, due to my fathers job. My parents have been farm workers since the first day my family and I came to the United States hoping to have a better future. I value my education, because many people like my parents did not have the same opportunity as me and many others to obtain and education for a better future. I have always been a responsible and hardworking student. As a children of parents who have worked all their life in agriculture i have faced many struggles. One of the main struggles was moving to new schools and different towns due to new harvesting seasons where it was needed to migrate to a new place with my parents. My family is my motivation to continue my education and pursue a career as a veterinarian, because from their experience I know it is difficult to find a job without an education.
