Singer, Selena Gomez congratulated graduating students from immigrant families as a part of the #Immigrad 2020 Virtual Commencement. She said;
“Congratulations to all the Immigrads. I know that this is a virtual ceremony but it is very real. And it’s very real to all of the families and all of you and your communities. I want you guys to know that you matter and that your experiences are a huge part of the American story,” “When my family came here from Mexico, they set into motion my American story, as well as theirs. I’m a proud third-generation American-Mexican and my family’s journey and their sacrifices helped me get me to where I am today.” Gomez added.
“Mine is not a unique story. Each and every one of you have a similar tale of becoming an American. So, regardless of where your family is from, regardless of your immigration status, you have taken action to earn an education to make your families proud and to open up your worlds. I’m sending all of my love to you guys today and congratulations and I hope that you guys are set off to be everything that you want to be,”.
Nice speech Selena,very touching and sweet. Happy graduation #immigrads!!!
