Aury Ramos has always had the dream to finish high school and go to college.  When she was orphaned in third grade, she thought those dreams would only be a fantasy. With the help of a very supportive aunt, she continued to study, came to the United States and then to Mountain View.  At Mountain View she felt welcomed and she felt comfortable enough to talk to any staff member in the school.  In her essay she wrote, “This school taught me to build trust in myself and never give up in any circumstance.”  As a young mother she realized that her daughter is her main motivation.  She wants to show her daughter that she never stopped studying in spite of all those obstacles.  She wants to inspire her to work hard for her goals and that dreams are attainable through hard work
