GEAR UP students (MUSIC) Sergio Tinoco: I tell kids you know just keep
going forward, stuck to it, stuck to your guns, you may not like it. I didn’t care for education trust me. I didn’t like the hard work that went that
had to go into it, I didn’t like studying so much and then stressing out on an exam. But it’s something that we must do in order
to acheieve that dream that we have. Once my book published and being a migrant
worker was part of it, a lot of schools have asked me to come and speak to their students. For me it’s an honor, because I didn’t have
this when I was a kid in High School. I didn’t have somebody telling me their story
that they themselves were migrant workers, that they themselves were struggling with
work and education. And trying to figure out how to you continue
that education and how do you follow your dreams when you’ve been raised thinking that
migrant life was all there was. Ania Austin: He was really inspirational,
especially to a lot of kids that don’t know what they want to do after graduation. So I feel that was very helpful. Analisa Garcia: This provides a great opportunity. We know that everyone has a different path
and students that are that can relate to him and really understand where he comes from,
and how did he get to where he is today. And so it gives the students a different perspective
and a different outlook of things that they can reflect on their own lives and to really
help them make that connection and figure out what they want to do with themselves in
the future. (MUSIC)
