Among the guest speakers were Vera Jimenez, Meteorologist for KTLA Channel 5 and Joseph Diaz, Professional Boxer.

Sharing her journey to becoming a meteorologist on TV, Jimenez told the students that she was born in Mexico and came to the U.S. as a young child. She grew up in Garden Grove and often struggled in school. She worked hard and persevered and went to Santa Ana Community College, Cal State Fullerton and Mississippi State. She started in radio as an airborne reporter and moved to television as a traffic reporter. She later became a weather reporter and decided at age 33 to go back to school to get her meteorologist certificate.
"I love being here with you today and the one thing I want you to remember and take away from this is that you matter. You are all super important and we want you to be successful," said Jimenez.

Vera Jimenez is KTLA's meteorologist and traffic reporter for KTLA 5 News at 6 and KTLA 5 News at 10.
Vera was born in Mexico and moved to Southern California when she was 3. Most of her family still lives in Garden Grove. She went to Bolsa Grande High School and Santa Ana Community College.
She later attended Cal State Long Beach where she graduated with honors in religious studies. It was during her time at SACC that she started in broadcasting. She interned at KIK-FM in Orange and then got a job producing traffic for Shadow Broadcasting. She landed a fill-in job doing traffic overnights at KFWB-AM. The best learning experience came while at KNX-AM, where she was an airborne traffic reporter.
Vera eventually got a chance to work on television - first for KABC-TV and then for KCBS-TV, both here in Los Angeles. While at KCBS-TV, Vera went back to school to study meteorology from Mississippi State, earning her certificate in August 2009.
Vera has earned two Emmys, three Golden Mikes and three Golden Pylons.

I often catch the weather on KTLA at 10pm, and their weathercaster, Vera Jimenez, often picks an unflattering outfit (the problem, by the way, is more the choice of color and the shortness of the skirt). Doesn't affect the quality of her presentation any, but for some reason it is one of the few times where I comment to my wife on fashion (and it now has me wondering why I'm so petty in this one area).
