LIFE IS A JOURNEY NOT A DESTINATION
From her Latin thread, Dallas native and 30 year old Gloria Hoskins offers a hardworking go-getter personality. Her lifelong passion to help others and personal stories of love, losses, and achievements, serves as an inspiration for others to emulate.
Beginning her career as a certified Spanish teacher, she has worked with kinder garden level children, “who sometimes make me want to run”, says Gloria with a laugh. But not everything has been a smile for Gloria. Prior to her achievements she suffered a tragedy that left her and a younger sibling as orphans while living in Mexico, at the ripe age of eight. Not long after these events, they found themselves in the care of a new family; who happened to be their late mother’s godparents. Having already raised 4 children of their own, the new parents yearned for the care of more children. “I was happy to know that not only I would go with family but felt so blessed I got to stay in the life of my brother”, Said Gloria.
“I was blessed to have had such wonderful parents and my success is owed to them”. She recounts her memories of traveling to distant parts of the world. Visiting places such as Paris, Rome, and some other states in the U.S among others. “Once I achieve my goals, my dream is to go return home and show them what a wonderful daughter they raised…basically, make them proud”, Said Gloria.
Throughout her career, Gloria has had the opportunity to return the love to other children. After graduating high school, she moved back to the Dallas area to further fulfill her goals. She is currently attending Tarrant County Community College at the North Richland Hills campus, where she is under taking required courses before transferring to the University of Texas. All this in the hopes of acquiring her Master degree in Biochemical Engineering.
