I would like to thank the Board of Directors of The Institute for doing this; but more importantly, I am really impressed by how they are capturing the history of many Latinos who have been struggling in the United States to succeed and have that record for other young Latinos to, in the future, look at them and say: ‘If they can do it, I can do it.’ To preserve that history is an amazing project.”
