I had the pleasure of teaching those two boys in middle school. If all the students had half the drive and determination of these boys you would have a line of people wanting to be teachers. Two, you would not have a discussion of schools that are failing or the high drop out rate. Those boys came to school to learn and came ready to work.

To the Recinos Family, there are many who I have met along my path in this life, but only a few have made an impact as you all have. It is truly inspiring to see that Karen, Freyman, and Jeison have done so well academically, as well as the other things you all do beyond that in life. Thank you for all taking the time to invest in getting to know me. In turn I have found more out about your family and know that this Native guy from a reservation in Northern Minnesota who never would have believed himself to get the opportunity to be at UCLA and meet a great friend like Jeison can see dreams come true through his life and thus your families lives. I continue to push on because of the example Jeison and you all have shown me in the time I was at UCLA. I continue to live life with the wise words that had been shared by your children Lilian. I continue to be a hardworker and that was reinforced by seeing your children work very hard to accomplish, what perhaps us that come from little beginnings never thought was possible. Blessings to you Lilian and know that you have made a greater contribution to many lives, beyond that which you may have had even thought you had impacted. For that I thank you. Inmer will fall in place and your children will all continue on your teachings as well as Manuel's name and story.

P.S - They never mention how awesome of a cook you are!

I have known the family for approximately six years and have seen what a hard working and loving mother Lilian is. Her children have inherited her drive and her caring nature and are amazing individuals in their own ways. Their success is not only the result of their drive; it has arisen from the love and respect they have for one another, as well as the unity they share as a family. I am sure you will all go on and achieve great things in your lives.

What a beautiful story. Even when it seems impossible to climb past that last hurdle, I stumble upon this story now and then and it reminds me to push forward and know that anything is possible.

Yes Sabrina, I'm glad that you find motivation in our story! It's been a long road for is but we've overcome so much to get to where we are. It takes dedication and knowing your goals... At this point, I've graduated medical school at ucla and have moved to the next phase of my goal, becoming a resident physician at Harbor-UCLA medical center. Keep it up and feel free to contact me at any time :)

My friend Cathy is a single parent with a 5 year old child. She recently get married with a wealthy, successful lawyer who earn more than 35,000,0 dollars a year. All my other friends and me are surprised. We can't stop asking her why she can hook up such a quality,elite man. She compromised and shared us with the secret.
