GLADYS ALEXANDRA CARDENAS
Where do I start with Gladys? She’s my sister-in-law, a confidante, our roomie, someone I can dance wildly with on a Wednesday night after one-too-many mixed drinks + one of the most hard-working people I’ve ever met. Let me tell you, she wakes up at 4 (sometimes 3) in the morning to make the drive from Temecula Valley to the CSU Fullerton for school, has been a part of countless clubs on campus for Journalism + PR, and still works at her high school alma mater. Did I mention, she’s graduating with a B.A. in Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations, and minors in Spanish + Business Administration. As Alicia Keys would say, this girl is on fire!
In my heart of hearts, I know she is moving on to bigger and better things outside of university. With a heart of gold, the tenacity to overcome any obstacle standing in her way and the drive to achieve her wildest dreams, I can’t wait to watch her soar. I have to stop writing because I’m getting real sappy over here. I love you, sister!
