"Being New Mexican means no meal is complete without it being smothered in chile, cheese, or both. New Mexico's strengths are in its diversity. There's no other place with so many different people, cultures, and subcultures coming together and mixing and mingling. We can unite New Mexico through education. If all New Mexicans young and old have access to the high-quality education we deserve, we can come together and share our brilliance."
