My Journey from a YES Prep Student Desk to a Local TV Station News Desk
Ilse M. Gonzalez, North Central Alumna
I was born in Houston, Texas and raised by my dad and mom in a Northside Houston home. My dad, my brother, my sister, and I all went to the same elementary school but the neighborhood wasn’t the safest nor was the middle school across the street the best option to get us ready for high school and college, so we moved. My parents had heard of YES Prep and what they stood for, so they couldn’t pass up the opportunity to ensure my brother and I not only got into college, but were prepared for it.
