“My mother has always called me "Dr. Marquez," with the dream that others would eventually do the same.  As a single mother, she has made numerous sacrifices to support my success, and has played a key role in me striving to succeed.  She has taught me to embrace life's challenges in search of valuable lessons, and that the accumulation of knowledge is one of life's ultimate achievements which has the ability to make any dream a reality. "Dr. Marquez" began as a mother's dream for her child, but it quickly grew into a child's dream for his future,” Marquez said.
