Annette Teijeiro understands something about Nevada families and the daily challenges they face. As a medical doctor, she hears their stories every day. She is running for US Congress against Michael Roberson, Andy Matthews and Danny Tarkanian. Before family moved to Las Vegas 40 years ago, they faced similar challenges as Latino immigrants who had endured many years without the opportunities afforded to most Americans. Undeterred, Annette learned at a very young age that commitment, education, and a sense of self-worth can changes lives. While working as a translator for a law firm (starting at 16), she graduated with honors from Bishop Gorman High School. But rather than attend school out of state, Annette enrolled in the Univ of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), was selected Miss Nevada United Teenager that same year, and became a teaching assistant. Upon graduation, she entered the Univ of Nevada School of Medicine to become a physician. http://friendsforannette.com/donate.htm
