"Stand and Deliver" with Edward James Olmos

Unread post by bluecollar » April 7th, 2004, 9:29 pm

This movie shows a bit about hispanic gang life although it is mostly concentrated on the theme . . . what Jaime Escalante did to motivate disadvantaged latino youths to succeed. If it wasn't for Mr. Escalante, I wouldn't be majoring in Chemical Engineering. Instead I would be serving burgers to asian and whites who always send their children to either become Doctors, Engineers, or Lawyers.

If any of you need advice, I can help. I am also a math tutor (volunteer).

Biggest lesson in life -> Don't fail because you think you can't succeed, fail because you've studied and worked for your goal and didn't make it because I can guarantee you, you'll make it after all.
