Today’s episode brings us another Oscar but this one is very different. (of course in a good way) Raised in LA by his single mother, he and his mom knew how important education was in life being a ticket to success in the United States. Also a little football talk – JETS fans should be excited!
On the episode we talk about our own internal challenges with identity and our “Latino-ness”. We also how talk about relocating to colleges where we found out there are huge differences in not only our latino counterparts from other Latin American backgrounds but also with our international peers from Latin America.
It’s a great episode in learning that we always need to hustle and put our best work forward. Also, I think the biggest gem is looking at different career paths to find and learn the skills that will allow you to shine in your future career goals. You have to listen to find out what I mean by this and I hope you find the same motivation I did when hearing Oscar’s story.

We close the episode with some football talk and how he became the commentator for Los Jets en Español. A side gig he has been jet-setting coast to coast doing for the past 10 seasons. Enjoy!
