Samara, You are so beautiful inside and out. I am so lucky and honored to have a daughter like you.
As this chapter of your life comes to a close, have faith in the adventures ahead, remember to take risks, continue stretching out of your comfort zone and enjoy the journey.
I applaud you. Watching you grow
Into an intelligent, poised, athletic, kind, funny, disciplined and focused young woman has been a gift. You kept very busy the last four years: marching band, travel, world ranking athlete for two years in cross fit, diving, community work in rural Panama with the Amigos program, learning to drive, working as a lifeguard, swim school instructor. After your father’s sudden death, you helped by filling in as a water operator In training. You challenged yourself by taking many AP and honors classes. The hard work showed with your 3.8 GPA. I was not a fan for you to attend Middle College at West Valley, however I trusted you. You have more than earned my trust and admiration.
You are the Brightest Ray. Keep Sparkling. Always remember how deeply you are loved. Your father was alway so proud of you and said parenting you was the best part of his life. Congratulations on your well deserved success.
