Aug 1, 2018
Paola Marizan

En este episodio hablamos de la importancia de la educación en familias Latinas. Getting a degree is not easy for a lot of immigrants, first generation graduates and for low income families. First, navigating through the system to sign up, llenar la FAFSA, escoger the right classes, the scholarships and all the resources that they often don't know about, etc. And then the difference in cultures, the pressure of finishing school and taking care of their families.

Mareea Thomas

The experience of 1.5 generation immigrants, a term used to describe people who arrived in the U.S. as children and adolescents, is a unique one. Unlike their first-generation parents or U.S.-born siblings, their identity is split. That in between. Los que hablan más inglés que Español o que a lo mejor no saben mucho acerca de la cultura de sus padres.

Paola Marizan

Aquí la historia de Janeth Vazquez. She grew up in Liberal Kansas and her father was deported when she started her first year of college. Ella dice que su vida cambió en todo el sentido de la palabra. She went from being a student and a daughter to being the sole provider of her family.

Alfonso Vidal

Why did Alfonso come to the Midwest? It had something to do with the FARC - las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia or the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia - una alianza en contra del gobierno since 1964. The FARC sustains their estilo de vida by kidnapping and ransom, illegal mining, extorsiones and the production and distribución of illegal drugs.
