Hey Robert... I admire your passion. Where we are from contributes greatly to who we become yet the choices we make determines who we are.
Keep up the good work. Lets connect the next time you are in LA.
Awsome Book! Thanks for letting us share in your sorrows and successes! Your story is very inspiring and I can only hope that our Latino youth read your book cover to cover and become inspired to go for their dreams! Keep up the great work and stay true to your upbringing!
Hi Robert, I visited your book's website. I've been thinking about publishing a lot lately...I am an avid reader and would love the chance to eventually help writers share their stories. Thanks for adding me as a friend. I hope to pick up a copy of your book soon (I have a stack of new ones at home already, but I should be through them in no time at all). Take care!
Hi Robert, thank you for the friend request. I was looking at your profile and am very impressed with your background. I always enjoy hearing about people like yourself. I will read your book and will like to attend one of your events.
Hello Robert, thanks for wanting to be my friend. There seems to me to be very interesting the topic of your book. I expect to have the opportunity to read it in the future. Do you live in Chicago? Do you speak Spanish? Regards.
Hello! Thanks for the request to be part of your group of friends in Hispanicpro. I was reading you profile and thought what an ispiring story he has. I am sure that I can use you book in my classroom. This will inspire my students, who came to the US leaving thier family and friends, and are strugling to overcome the obsticles to a better.
I speak at schools and colleges. I lecture on the history of Mexico through dance from the pre-Columbian to the modern. I am not an expert but I have come to learn some of Mexican history that most Mexicans do not know. Even some of those that come from Mexico.
I have not checked your book but I will get to it.
When I lecture to young people I tell them that even high school may not be enough. In the 40s and 50s it was enough but not today. I was fortunate to have attended a top notch technical high school where I received a good education that was enough to get a job with Western Electric. I moved to an engineering position and had a fairly decent income. However later I had to return to college to keep up with the ever growing technology. I finally earned a degree when I was 49 years old. And it helped me retain my position, that now required a college degree. And when I retired early I got all sorts of offers for jobs. All because I had a degree. I use my experience when I speak to the youth of today.
