Thumbs-up, thumbs-down; it's your choice

THUMBS-UP

A huge thumbs-up to Olga Zamora for realizing and achieving her dream in life! Although I do not know her, I am so proud of her! Many blessings to her, and I wish her continued success! Thank you Victoria Advocate for giving her the coverage.

A huge two thumbs-up to the UHV Lady Jaguars who not only sponsored a VYSO U10 girls team but showed up at Saturday's game to give support! Thank you Jaguars for being role models for these girls! You don't realize how much you positively impact a child's life by being there. As soon as we got home, our little girl printed the pictures taken with the Lady Jaguars and hung it in her room. Thank You!

Diego, Victoria
