The MEXICO Report
By Susie Albin-Najera 

Maya Angelou is quoted as saying that “we are at our greatest when we encourage and connect with another human being.”

Building the Latino Future, an inspiring compilation of success stories written by Frank Carbajal and Humberto Medina does just this. Both with meager and humble beginnings and raised with strong family values, these two authors graciously guide us through the successful trajectories of 49 Latino individuals who made commitments, worked hard and sacrificed which ultimately led them to reach high profile positions in society.

Carbajal and Medina carefully selected these Latinos to profile as they all shared six common leadership characteristics: focus, unity, tenacity, unique ability, resiliency and education.

I especially like this book because it profiles the hardworking, successful Latina women and Latino men from all professions, from entertainment to technology, government to corporate life. And the route of each story exemplifies what our society needs most right now regardless of cultural background: hope for the future. We are heavily influenced as a society by each other’s actions, words and behaviors and this book not only mentors and inspires readers but offers encouragement, insight, and exemplary references to how others, especially the future generation, can achieve their greatest potential.
