WAIS Graduate Spotlight: Nancy

Nancy Uroza is featured in a new article, First to Graduate, First to College for WAIS Senior, on SBISD's School Zone. Nancy is a Bilingual IB Diploma Candidate and is involved in National Honor Society, French Honor Society, and Spanish Honor Society.

Nancy Uroza will be the first in her family to graduate from high school and the first to go to college. And not only graduate from high school, but to graduate with a bilingual International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma. Twelfth grade counselor Beverly Martin puts that piece into perspective – “It’s the hardest one,” she said. “The language piece is like taking it in that country.”

Uroza, 18, said that coming to WAIS in sixth grade gave her stability that she hadn’t had before.

“I like it here,” she said. “We moved around a lot in Cy-Fair and staying here was stable for me.”

She plans to first attend the University of Houston-Downtown then transfer to Houston Baptist University and study business administration. She’s not exactly sure what she wants to do after that. 
“Maybe I’ll open a family company, something horticultural, in honor of my dad,” she said. Or maybe a shoe company – “I love shoes,” she said – and donate some of the profits to a service organization. 
“I love helping people,” she said. “Maybe I’ll form a non-profit.”
