As we all know, June is a very important month for lots of parents and family members with us acknowledging our wonderful graduates who have worked so hard this year. But let’s not forget about the “little” people—our young children that is!

Ranging from 3-K to 8th grade, as well as attending schools in the Brooklyn and Queens areas, I am honored to shine the light on some of my nieces and nephews who have either graduated or moved on up to the next level. The celebrations consisted of three graduations and five moving-up ceremonies. Though I was unable to attend them all, I was definitely there in spirit. 

This is just a proud reminder of our youth’s success, no matter how small it is. With constant dedication and support, they will push themselves to reach higher and will keep on reaching.

Congratulations to my graduating class of 2019!
