The oldest child in any family is left with a huge responsibility of being the best role model to his/her younger siblings. You must be on your best behavior, because you lead by example. You also have the power to inflict terrible memories for their later years. You also have the power to pull rank on all of your siblings, thereby controlling their behavior or punishment.

One smart, hardworking individual comes to mind. Joseph Rios is the oldest of five siblings. Rios is a balanced young man who is both sensitive and caring to his three sisters yet tough and caring to his younger brother. He has worked two jobs or more for the past four years, all the while attending Metro State University of Denver. He has learned to be resourceful, hardworking and sensitive because two outstanding parents raised him.

For a few years Rios has coordinated and written the El Mundo section for La Voz. He has also written for the MSU newspaper, has waited on tables at various restaurants, delivered newspapers, and babysat his younger siblings.

Rios graduated from Metropolitan State University of Denver with a degree in journalism this past Friday. His parents, grandma, aunt and uncle, and his four younger siblings stood proudly as they announced his name. It takes a special kind of young man to earn the right of the eldest.

Did I mention that his 17-year-old sister Isabella graduates from Arvada West High School this week, and has been accepted to Colorado School of Mines?

Congratulations to a hardworking, smart young man with great ambition. A fantastic future awaits you!.
