I think this gal must be the child I never had. Because she has fire. A lot of fire. And she’s not afraid to torch that bridge when necessary.
Nataly Buhr is making headlines with her valedictorian speech at San Ysidro High School in sunny California. After the standard thanking of her friends and family, and a handful of memorable teachers, she pulled an Al-Pacino-Scent-of-a-Woman-take-a-flame-thrower-to-this-place-speech.
She “thanked” her counselor:
"… for teaching me to fend for myself. You were always unavailable to my parents and I, despite appointments. Only in these past few weeks, with the awards ceremonies and graduation coming up, did you begin making your appearance.”
She “thanked” the office staff:
"Your negligence to inform me of several scholarships until the day before they were due potentially caused me to miss out on thousands of dollars.”
She “thanked” an unnamed teacher:
Who was “regularly intoxicated during class… Thank you for using yourself as an example to teach students about the dangers of alcoholism. Being escorted by police out of school was a lasting impression.”
School officials said her speech wasn’t the one she submitted for approval prior to the ceremony, and that she ruined the positivity of her moment. Uhmm... she took her moment up 10 notches!
FYI: Her parents and friends are proud of her shade. Put this chick in charge of something.
