[OP-ED]: A familiar voice with an all-too-familiar story

Ray Suárez es un verdadero periodista. Tras ascender superando dificultades en los años 70 y 80 -cuando la frase ‘reportero de televisión’ conjuraba imágenes de Mike Wallace y Harry Reasoner y no la de un muchacho puertorriqueño de Brooklyn- este veterano de 60 años es simplemente la norma a la que muchos jóvenes periodistas latinos aún aspiran. youtube.com

Best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell says it takes around 10,000 hours of practice to master a craft. 

But there’s a catch. Who’s to say that, by the time you put in the years necessary to get really good at something, you won’t be at an age where it is tough to find gainful employment?

Ray Suarez is a real newsman. Having come up the hard way in the 1970s and ‘80s -- when the phrase “television newscaster” conjured up images of Mike Wallace or Harry Reasoner and not a Puerto Rican kid from Brooklyn -- this 60-year-old veterano is simply the standard to which many young Latino journalists still aspire. Photo: youtube.com

El exitoso autor Malcolm Gladwell dice que se necesitan unas 10.000 horas de práctica para dominar un arte. 

Pero hay un problema. ¿Quién puede determinar si, para cuando uno ha invertido los años necesarios para ser realmente competente en algo, no ha llegado a una edad en que es difícil encontrar un empleo remunerado?
