AFETT President Presents Valedictorian Speech

On April 28th, Tricia Leid - AFETT’s President (2016/2017), was pleased to present the valedictorian speech at her alma mater - Diego Martin Secondary. The theme was The Power of the Dream, and she inspired the form 5 and 6 students with her story about living her purpose by following her passion. Being successful is more of a decision by being the best at whatever you decide to do in life. She shared personal stories of advice given to her by her mother and her early years about being a part of AFETT.


  • School may be over but the learning continues.

  • Give, and in sharing what you know, you also learn.

  • Put your best effort in whatever you do. Do it well.

  • Take opportunities as they come.

“Life is not about one dream or one goal. It is an evolution of being the best person you can be in any situation that life hands you. I am successful because I decided to be. We all know right from wrong, but when we know better, we do better.”
