Over two decades ago, The Latin American Educational Foundation (LAEF) and its donors believed in an applicant’s dream that included shifting his family’s and community’s legacy from the maquiladoras [factories] and auto mechanics to a higher calling through higher education. That applicant is me, and I am forever thankful to LAEF for believing in me.
