WORDS TO LIVE BY

Its best to find what you need in the people who are there for you, not the ones who let you down.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Through the National Honor Society, Duran is involved with projects like food drives, and hosting tournaments as well as volunteering at Coors Field throughout the summer.

WHY IS COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT IMPORTANT?

It matters to be informed about whats going on around you. Also, its one of the best learning experiences anyone can get.

IF I COULD IMPROVE THE WORLD I WOULD...

I would like to change the way people treat one another. I would like for people to empower one another instead of putting each other down because we all know struggle and pain.

COLLEGE OF CHOICE

Duran has applied to the University of Denver, Colorado State University, Regis University, the University of Denver at Boulder and has been accepted to the University of Colorado at Denver.
