Reading, PA gets a Latino valedictorian

“Do not let someone tell you that you cannot do something or be someone in life." That's what this year's Reading High School valedictorian, Noe Cabello, had to say during his speech. But it wasn't just any speech, it was the first time a Latino was ever chosen as the valedictorian. Sure it may not sound like a big deal, but for a city that is now 58% Hispanic, why is this just happening?

So what would you say during your speech as the first Latino anything: Speak Spanish? Bring up your Latino heritage? Give a wake-up call to others? Listen/watch below to what Cabello had to say.
