A Proud Mami

Podcast Episode 4

In our 4th episode, we wanted to share Miguel’s valedictorian speech. He graduated from Manhattan College 2020 and like many other graduates he didn’t get an opportunity to say his speech in front of an live audience but that doesn’t stop him from sharing with you all. We hope you enjoy listening and find inspiration in his words. To Infinity and Beyond!
