The Strength of our Mettle On the Virtues of Community

Esquina del Editor

By Theresa N. Rojas, Editor, PhD Candidate, Department of English

This spring, over 8,200 students representing 90 countries and 6 continents filled the Ohio Stadium, affectionately known as “The ‘Shoe,” for OSU’s 403rd Commencement of The Ohio State University. Graduates of the class of 2013, surrounded by friends and family, had the rare opportunity to hear a sitting President deliver the commencement speech. Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States, spoke of participation, perseverance, and the power of community. This special issue of ¿Qué Pasa, OSU? highlights moments from the Latino Buckeye Graduation Celebration and the 403rd Commencement Ceremony. One such highlight was a speech given by graduating senior, Amber Seira at this year’s celebration. Amber has been near and dear to this editor as a mentee for the past two years and I congratulate her on her admission to Indiana University’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Amber’s service to the university epitomizes the kind of participation and perseverance that makes OSU proud of its graduates. At the celebration, graduates are presented with a coveted graduation stole. Amber reflects on how “when we wear these stoles on commencement day, it’s a public victory for all Latinos.” Indeed, for many of us the road has been circuitous and filled with untold challenges. It is at these times when we reach out to our community of friends, family, colleagues, mentors, advisers, and fellow Buckeyes. As several of my closest cohorts graduated recently, President Obama’s words resonated: “For all the turmoil; for all the times you have been let down, or frustrated at the hand you’ve been dealt; what I have seen…are perennial and quintessentially American values. Altruism. Empathy. Tolerance. Community.” As if anticipating the President’s speech, Amber reminds us “you belong here…you deserve to live out the fullest extent of your dreams.” The faces in the following pages represent just a few of the many people involved in the heterogeneous communities of our Latino students. As members of a university whose motto is “Education for Citizenship,” no one knows

the importance of community more than these graduates. The 2013 graduating class includes a record number of Latinos who have earned degrees in such diverse fields as Art, Aviation, Biology, Dentistry, English, Finance, History, Mathematics, Medicine, Neuroscience, Nursing, Plant Pathology, Public Policy, Spanish, Veterinary Medicine, and Women’s Studies among many others. We are honored to depict some of our cadet graduates, acknowledged by the President: “Consider that today, 50 ROTC cadets in your graduating class will become commissioned officers in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. 130 of your fellow graduates have already served – some in combat, some on multiple deployments.  Of the 98 veterans earning bachelor’s degrees today, 20 are graduating with honors.  As your Commander-inChief, I could not be prouder of all of you.” Our Latino graduates are part of a larger world of invested, intelligent, compassionate citizens contributing to the improvement of our society. “The graduates of this university serve their country through the Peace Corps, and educate our children through established programs like Teach for America and startups like Blue Engine, often earning little pay for making the biggest impact.  Some of you have already launched startup companies of your own.  I suspect that those of Editor Theresa Rojas Designer & Photo Editor Emily Strouse Editorial Consultant Indra Leyva Staff Writer Anthony Wiggins Editorial Board Jose Cabral, Chair Frederick Luis Aldama Francesca Amigo Normando Caban Jeff Cohen Ignacio Corona Andrea Doseff Francisco-Xavier Gómez-Bellengé Indra Leyva Victor Mora Patricia Palominos-Dunaeff Abril Trigo Fernando Unzueta Yolanda Zepeda, Ex Officio

you who pursue more education, or climb the corporate ladder, or enter the arts or sciences or journalism, will still choose a cause you care about in your life and fight like heck to make it happen.” “There is a word for this.  It’s citizenship.  We don’t always talk about this idea much these days, let alone celebrate it.  Sometimes, we see it as a virtue from another time – one that’s slipping from a society that celebrates individual ambition; a society awash in instant technology that empowers us to leverage our skills and talents like never before, but just as easily allows us to retreat from the world.  The result is that we sometimes forget the larger bonds we share, as one American family. We are not a collection of strangers…we are bound together by a country we love.” Likewise, we are bound together by a university we hold in our hearts long after graduation. Congratulations class of 2013, family, friends, and cohorts. I too wish you courage, compassion, and strength. Con amor, Theresa Rojas

Dear Ohio State Graduates, We send you into the world, better, with hope and promise. And you leave us, better for your having been here, and we thank you.    Go forth and do good.  Wherever you go, whatever you do, you will always be a Buckeye and a family member of the world’s largest Alumni Association. Sincerely, Joseph A. Alutto Interim President, The Ohio State University

Congratulations on earning your degree at this wonderful international university! When you first arrived on campus, you opened your minds and your hearts to new ideas, new approaches, and new people.  As you leave our university community, you take all that with you—ideas, approaches, and friends.  Likewise, you brought with you the richness of your own experiences and perspectives and those will be taken by others and folded into their now much-larger view of the world.  In addition, you will take with you the critical thinking skills that you learned as a university student to hold you well as you assess opportunities and challenges wherever you find yourselves in your careers and in your communities throughout your lives.

Latino Buckeye Graduation Celebration Graduation Speech By Amber Seira, Bachelor of Arts, Public Affairs, John Glenn School of Public Affairs

Good Evening everyone. Thank you friends, family, staff, and faculty for being here and for supporting your accomplished students. Here we are, graduates at the Latino Graduation Ceremony. I can’t help but beam when I look out at all of you. In particular, I want to congratulate those undergrads who, like me, graduated high school in 2009. The testing agency ACT conducted a study and estimated that of all the Latinos who graduated high school in 2009, seven percent will attain their bachelor’s degree

this year. I repeat, seven percent. With this degree we are turning heads, but there is still more we can do. Let us remember to encourage our siblings, cousins, and friends back home, to be their best possible self and change the statistics. I know you are making a difference and will continue to do so. Now I don’t know about you, but ever since I looked at graduation photos featured in the Latino campus magazine, ¿Qué Pasa, OSU?, and seeing graduates bearing these colorful stoles, I’ve wanted to have one. Indra can attest to this. It has been very important to get my stole (preferably a purple one). In my overt enthusiasm to earn my degree and thus, receive the stole, I recently contemplated why wearing it at graduation matters so much to me. Yes it explains where I came from when I arrived to Ohio State but wearing cloth that marks my ethnicity symbolizes more than family heritage. It is a public display of what I have

independently embraced during my OSU journey. Earlier in April I had the pleasure of introducing my special guests to the rest of a crowd at a senior celebration dinner. After introducing my dearest friend Indra I paused to look at her, trying to remember what I had mentally prepared, explaining why this individual is significant to my Ohio State experience. Instead I was overwhelmed with emotions and started to cry. What I couldn’t figure out how to explain then was how this woman bared witness to my trials in acceptance of my heritage. What is a commonly heard phrase around campus is the diversity students will experience. Every single individual has a unique outlook to learn from and I have benefitted a lot from these interactions. Some students have certain sets of attributes that are not as commonly found at the university. That overwhelming feeling I had felt at dinner was due to the day-to-day battles with my Latina experience. It is very challenging to be someone else’s first Latina experience. Looking back it almost seems cruel to throw a bunch of 17 and 18 year olds together in cramped living space resident halls and expect the upmost maturity in their conduct at all times. Moreover during classroom discussions, it is a tiring task to have the compassion to explain different deeply rooted socio-economic and ethnic conditions. There have


been times where I have felt the people of my heritage so misunderstood. It has been a persistent, everyday obstacle for the last four years to respectfully guide a change of mind and heart. Why did we do it? Why did we choose to stick to this identity? What I very quickly grasped my freshman year is that nobody was going to force me to act on any matter. With the Latino presence spread out all over campus, it would be very easy to save us the trouble and blend in. Yet we didn’t, we held onto our latinidad and with it we persevered to reach our success. We are all driven and intelligent individuals. Interactions with misunderstanding were eventually going to happen. It has to begin somewhere and expressing your identity is not going to get any easier. We are pushing boundaries, smashing expectations, and challenging the status quo. Wherever we go with this degree will probably have a similar Latino representation and understanding. But when we wear these stoles on commencement day, it is a public victory for all Latinos. Continue to be high-performing Latino ambassadors, changing the face of higher education, the career workforce, and of this country. Always remember the resilience and strength of Latinos. To graduating and current students, I want to remind

you of something very important. Always remember that you belong here, at The Ohio State University, in your future careers. There is a reason why you study here and a reason for your success. You are not a number to add to a collection, you are not a token of anything. You did not get in here nor finish your degree for any other qualifications different than your fellow peers. You belong in your prospective classrooms, work places, and careers; you deserve to live out the fullest extent of your dreams. Undergraduates, we have it good. We’re

90s babies, probably the best decade to grow up in. It has instilled in us a different purity of hearts and dreams. From current local to national events we see evidence of that already happening. I have high hopes for our generation and full confidence that we will go forward with our ingrained heritage to make the world a better place. We are the future and the future is here, right now. Do not wait to find the change, we are the ones we have been waiting for. Thank you everyone and congratulations to the class of 2013!

Parting Words from Graduates

Bettina Berillas Master of Public Administration

Aiden Carrillo Logistics Management

Without the support of family and friends, I would not have been able to complete my degree. These special people stood by me through the ups and downs of graduate school, sharing my successes and failures. In no particular order, I would like to thank: my wonderful family, Jenny, Lindsay, Lori, Brendan, Brenda, Dr. Vickner, Dr. Fields, Erik, Kate, Estera, Dr. Coleman, Theresa, Steven, Olga, Samyam, Nikhil, Sanjay, Sid, Praneitha, Navni, Lucy, and Leticia.

My family was instrumental in guiding me through college by giving me motivation, support, and advice. Throughout my college journey, I have had some amazing friends. These friends are involved in a variety of ways at OSU, and through their help I have been able to get involved in many different organizations. While being involved, I have opened doors to new connections which have helped me make my college experience both rewarding and fulfilling. Thank you family and friends! Alejandra Cervantes Bachelor of Science, Biology I would like to thank God for giving me the opportunity to keep reaching my goals. I thank my family for all of their support, love, and motivation; for always being there when I need it most.

To my entire Bridge family for providing that sense of family here on campus even before I took my first class, and of course I thank the Latino community on campus for providing that sense of culture we need in order to survive four years at Ohio State. Daniel Garcia Bachelor of Arts How can you say thank you to those who have meant more than the world to you?   To those who celebrated with you during all the good days, but also gave an ear to listen with a shoulder to lean on during all the stormy ones?  To those who would put an arm around your shoulder and said you would make it, and those

who gave you a swift kick in the pants telling you to man up? It would take me forever to properly tell all those key people in my life how much they truly mean to me, but to Mom, Dad, Raichelle, Kezhia, Elisabeth, and all my friends… Thank you. Thank you with all my heart for all your love and support.  I would not be standing here today if it were not for each of you.
