EDGE On Demand- Hero Or Zero?
Mayte Lara deleted her twitter account after the controversial post got more than 9,000 retweets and just as many angry replies.
Many said she didn’t deserve the accolades because she’s an illegal immigrant and was bragging about it.
Here’s what the austin, Texas teen tweeted: ‘Valedictorian, 4.5 GPA, full tuition paid for at the University of Yexas, 13 cords and medals, nice legs, oh and I ‘m undocumented.’
Even though she publicly admitted to being undocumented, it will not affect her offer of full tuition. Texas state law grants two-semesters of tuition waivers to valedictorians — regardless of their residency status.
So what do you think? Is she a hero or a zero?
