Nallely Flores-Martinez

High School: Notre Dame Preparatory, Class of 2011

Building Bridges Advocate: Heather Emmert

Always the go-getter, Nallely was heavily involved throughout her years at NDP. She was a member of the Marching Band, National Honor Society, Science National Honor Society, NDP Color Guard, and JV Tennis. She most loved the environment, where students were mentally focused and had a great balance between studying and building relationships. She already knew that the world was her oyster, and back then, was interested in pursuing a career in the medical field, psychology, or education.

After NDP, Nallely was committed to completing her education while working full-time in automotive finance and later, automotive warranties. She ended up loving Calculus, Intro to Electrical Circuits, and Intro to Thermodynamics–a far cry from what she though she would do in high school, but because she has always worked to consistently learn more and improve herself, the last 10 years of her life has been constant change and progression–even if not linear.
