Adamari Rodriguez

My name is Adamari Rodriguez, I am from slower lower Millsboro Delaware where I graduated from Sussex Central High School in 2017 third in my class. I am the oldest of 3 girls, therefore, I had to quickly learn how to become like a second mother for my sisters. While I was growing up, I really looked up to my father because he would work all day and night in harsh labor. Sometimes I would never see him because he would leave before I got up to go to school and come back late when I was already in bed. I knew when I little that I wanted to grow up and be successful, so my father didn't have to work anymore.

Fast forward 10 years later I am in high school and got my first job at the local Dairy Queen. I was so excited when I got my first check even though it was a seldom sixty bucks because I was too young to work during the week. You see even though I was young, I have always been very optimistic and excited, after I accomplished something, I wanted to see what was next. I was always challenging myself. Therefore, I enrolled in the International Baccalaureate program at Central which was extremely challenging yet allowed me to construct unforgettable bonds with my classmates and teachers. I later ran for Senior Class President because I was really bad at public speaking and I knew that the president had to speak at graduation therefore I was to work on myself for the better. I excelled in high school and received much recognition, but nothing beat the proud look in my parents' eyes.

I then went into college undeclared at the University of Delaware because I knew I wanted to study a meaningful profession, but I could not decide what path I wanted to take. I took many electives and recently decided to declare my major as International Relations with a legal studies minor. I want to be an immigration lawyer and help many families get their documentation, so their children can have the same opportunities I had. Although I am now a sophomore at the University of Delaware my academic and personal goal is the same, I want to continue challenging myself and become a better version of myself than I was yesterday. My dad has such a good heart and now it is my turn to give and to love. I am ready to make my family proud and become someone who can positively impact and help my community right here in Delaware.
