A Donna High School alumnus is giving back to his alma matter through words of hope and inspiration.
Cosme Flores, a 2014 Donna High School graduate, was on hand this morning speaking to students about his journey becoming an actor. Flores recently landed a role in the Power Rangers series on Nickelodeon.
As a former member of the high school theater program, Flores went on to attend the University of Texas at Austin, receiving a bachelor’s degree in acting. The actor says there is talent in the Rio Grande Valley and people are taking notice.
“The movement for us as Mexicans, Mexicanos, Latinos, Hispanic people it’s exciting. People want to see us. I think it’s important for me to come back and say, ‘hey you know if you want to do it do it’. Just be persistent. Be hard working about it, work at it, and keep trying your hardest because it’ll pay off.”
Flores’s role as ‘Ben’ in the new Power Rangers series is expected to air sometime this year.
