I hired a young man the other day…for some help in my yard. He was very polite and well mannered.
I picked him up at his house and we had about a 10 minute ride back to my house.
I asked him –“Where are you going to school? He said he is going to Bellermine…”
And what do you want to be when you are older….He replied he wanted to be a doctor.
I know that he came from simple beginnings and this was a big dream.
I replied…”Wow that is a big dream…how did you ever know that is what you wanted”.
He said “I was lucky enough to join a group at school that helped me realized that I can do anything I want to do…and I can go to a good high school and college”.
I thought those are big dreams…but good ones to have.
I asked “what’s the name of the group”
He replied “Breakthrough of Silicon Valley”.
His name is Ramon Garcia. His father is my gardener and my friend.
I am so proud that this group received one of Intero Foundation grants.
We do good things!!
