School: Lieder Elementary School
Accomplishments: Ramos has been active in dance since 2014, participating in the Houston Ballet’s The Nutcracker in 2017-2019 and with the Houston Texans Junior Cheerleaders for the past four years.
Favorite class: “I love to read, so I’d have to say Reading is my favorite class.”
Favorite things to do after class: “Play with my dog, Roscoe.”
Favorite song: “The Breakup Song by Francesca Battistelli. In Dec. 2018, I became very ill with pneumonia and developed a breathing disorder called Paradoxical Vocal Fold Motion. I fought through it until May 2019. This song reminded me not to be afraid.”
Favorite website/app: “The Dualingo App. I am able to learn different languages. I am currently working on Spanish. French and Chinese will be next.”
Favorite TV show: “I have too many to name one.”
Favorite movie: “The Greatest Showman. This movie has a really great message behind it. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you like. In the end, we are all human and special in our own way.”
Ambition: “I have an ambition to be a doctor one day. I want to be able to help children the way doctors helped me when I was ill. I still do not know what type of doctor, but I’m sure that I want to become one.”
What topics/things are you passionate about?: “I am passionate about giving back to our Houston communities in need. For the past four years, I have been part of the Miss Houston Organization and have learned how important it is to serve others. When you do this it not only provides for those in need, but also helps you grow as a better person.”
What inspires you?: “Just being myself. Too many times people get caught up in social media or acting like someone they are not. But true to myself keeps me positive during hard times.”
What three things can’t you live without?: “Mexican food, my tablet and my family.”
What are you most looking forward to this semester?: “Being able to return to the classroom. I miss my friends and teachers and I am really looking forward to seeing them.”
