Alumni of the Month
TRINA VARGAS

 

Trina recently graduated summa cum laude from the University at Albany in December of 2013. She received her Bachelors of Arts degree in Criminal Justice, with minors in both Public Administration and French. Currently, Trina is working full time in administration for a non-profit clinical service agency while working on the law school application process. She is looking forward to going back to school.

When Trina was a senior at FHS , she was invited to visit the White House with a group of FHS students to attend a concert which included President Obama and his wife, Michelle. As this was Trina's first trip to Washington D.C. and an amazing opportunity to sit in the same room as the president and first lady, Trina eagerly read President Obama's autobiography Dreams of My Father in preparation for her trip. These experiences allowed her to begin rethinking the possibilities of her own success. After writing a letter to the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, Trina was put in contact with one of Michelle Obama's speech writers who is considering including her experiences in a future speech. Read Trina's letter.
