Valedictorian – Class of 2016
Angel Ramirez was born and raised on Long Island, the youngest of two. She was taught by her parents that knowledge was the most important gift life could give you. Because of this, her education became her top priority.
From a young age, Angel strived to learn and challenge herself every day. Throughout her life, she focused on her schooling and aimed to excel in it as much as she could. After graduating high school she knew Dowling was the place for her.
Her true passion surfaced while attending Dowling College after discovering the Communication Arts program. She then decided to dedicate herself to her academic work in media studies in order to pursue a career in the film industry.
She continually balanced school and work through her four years of study, bouncing back and forth from both each day. This full schedule only encouraged her to work harder and to take in as much knowledge as she could as graduation approached.
