In Frame: Ruben Ramirez

In Frame - Ruben Ramirez | 6th-grader at South Texas ISD Preparatory Academy 

Ruben see’s his future but lives for the moment.

He aspires to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a lawyer just like dad.

He’s witnessed first-hand the time and energy that goes into being successful in the legal field, and is determined to be all in leading up to that point, but also having fun along the way.

These days, fun for Ruben means playing soccer, archery and hanging out with friends on the weekends, oh and math class - his favorite. :)

He’s a straight A-student, focused on academics, but also allows himself the flexibility to simply enjoy life as an STISD student without having to over commit.

In his first year as an STISD student, it didn’t take long for him to feel at home. He loves everything about the culture and all he’s experienced so far.

When it comes time for high school, he’s got his eyes set on Health Professions in Mercedes, and either TCU or Texas A&M for college, but what he really hopes for, is to get into Harvard then Harvard Law to continue the legal legacy.

This month, we are in frame with Ruben Ramirez.
