We are East Los Angeles...
I, Esteban Gutiérrez, matter because my teachers at Belvedere Magnet MS taught me to believe in myself and never give up. I matter because my new teachers at Torres HS/STEM are already showing me the way to reach my goal of becoming a scientist. I matter because my family doesn’t give up on me, no matter the challenges I may face.
You, Elsa Gutiérrez, my mother, matter because you believe in me and my dreams. You matter because you made sure to set an example of hard work and perseverance. You matter because your love gives me energy, hope and it inspires me to keep going.
We, The Gutiérrez Family, matter because we motivate each other to overcome obstacles and hardships together. We matter because we keep each other safe during these difficult times. We matter because we care!!
I MATTER, YOU MATTER, WE MATTER!
