Our Favorite New U.S. Citizen

We are excited to congratulate Evelyn “Melisa” De La Rosa on recently becoming a U.S. Citizen. Born in Guadalajara Jalisco Mexico, Melisa immigrated to the United States in 1990 and joined the Custom Logos family in 1998. The eldest of 5 siblings, Melisa has taken some time away with each of the births of her 6 children, and currently oversees the finishing department here at Custom Logos as she approaches her twentieth anniversary with us. A product of humble beginnings, Melisa’s dad was a shoemaker in Mexico and now does maintenance at a private French school. Her mom was a hair stylist in Mexico and now babysits the grandchildren. Both are deaf mutes. 2020 has been a big year for Melisa and her family as she not only became a U.S. citizen but bought her first house as well. Congrats Melisa! You are a valued member of our family and we love you.

And for the record, this is legit. We couldn’t make this up if we tried!
