North Port High School STRIVE Recipients
Rousemary Estrada | Education has played a part in Rousemary’s (pronounced Rosemary) life since the start. Her father hadn’t finished school and didn’t know he misspelled by inserting “u” on her birth certificate. It bestows a unique identity, Rousemary believes. She treasures the link to the family she left in Mexico at age 12 when her mom insisted that she return to the United States with her stepdad for a better education. Rousemary tutors students in Spanish, started a UnidosNow Club at school, works part-time, and holds a 4.6 GPA. She is going to the University of Florida for a business degree. She wants to create a cleaning business that pays sustainable wages and uses environmentally friendly supplies.
