As 2018 ends, so does the college life of many University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) students. The official Facebook page for UTEP released a very beautiful video showcasing some of their most recent graduates.

The beloved President of the UTEP, Dr. Diana Natalicio can be heard as the voice of inspiration for these graduates. It only takes her one minute to make my heart swell, along with the tears in my eyes. While I have been honored to hear two of her speeches during my own graduations, her words inspire me every time.

As Dr. Natalicio prepares to retire, these type of videos are the ones that should be shared around El Paso instead of all those bar fights. Your future is bright and it is a true accomplishment. Don't let anyone tell you it is not because you will run into that in the job market. Be proud to be from UTEP, from El Paso. If they tell you something mean, just start singing a Khalid song. Congrats to the Class of 2018!
