[OP-ED]: Why I failed to become an Engineer..

 08/16/2016 - 17:33

Well, there were already 2 in my family. 

My brother Agustín, Electrical Engineer, and my brother Raúl, who just retired from his noble profession, after a long and meritorious career as a Mechanical Engineer.

At age 16, I wanted to be, if not "somebody", at least somebody else.

Make my life count for something —not like in an act of heroism— but, in a more earthly purpose, to avoid being a blatant redundancy.

Or perhaps, God forbids, a plain-vanilla, mediocre, self-conceited brat.

In 2008, The AL DÍA Foundation, a non profit organization founded by Hernán Guaracao, presented the first two awards, worth $20,000, to two distinguishing journalists, both of them from California.

At the center, Alberto Ibargüen, president & CEO of the Knight Foundation, and Zita Arocha, professor of the University of Texas at the presentation of the Varela Awards, at Temple University. Arocha, of Cuban origin, is juror of this award, alongside journalists Albor Ruiz, Emilio Sanchez and Linn Washington. Instead of engineering, Hernán chose to reward the good “engineers of the language,” acknowledging those who use it for the purpose of divulging the little known reality of the latino community of the United States.
