My name is Miriam Pineda. I am a graduate from Palm Beach Lakes High School. The best part of Suits for Seniors was learning about being ready to succeed in college. Learning about the expenses of college and the best way to find funding for it. They constantly pushed for us to work on scholarships and complete our FASFA. When I graduate I plan to attend FAU and study Pharmacy.
