Where are they going?: Melanie Vazquez
Welcome to The Mav’s Senior Tradition where we highlight our current seniors and discuss where they are headed to
Melanie Vazquez (‘22) looks forward to finishing high school and attending Front Range Community College where she will major to be an American Sign Language interpreter.
When asked what made her choose this career, Vazquez said, “I’ve always been interested in speech therapy because my little sister has Down Syndrome. Seeing the therapist come to my house and how she’s fluent and able to help others was really cool.”
High school is a place where you learn lots of stuff not only academically but about your personal growth. After her four years, Vazquez is shared she is more sure about herself.
Vazquez expressed pride in her growth with her writing skills. She said, “My goal has been to get good at writing, and I feel as if I’ve done that.”
She said that she will miss the fun and welcoming teachers, specifically Mr. Martin Clark, who made the learning environment fun.
As she graduates, Vazquez advised freshmen and sophomores not to check out during their first two years, which she believes are extremely important. She advised incoming seniors to “enjoy every day because it goes by so quickly”.
As Vazquez moves on to her next chapter in life, we wish her good luck.
