From Honduras To New York Runways

Here's a thought-provoking story to share with students in these final weeks of the winter term. Carlos Campos is a successful figure in the New York fashion world; he also walked to New York from Honduras as a child. This Aljazeera America profile is longer and uses some complex language, while this piece in REMEZCLA is simpler and easier for lower-level students to engage with.

As a side note, keep your eyes on REMEZCLA as you look for content for your classes. They tell stories about Latino culture in the US and globally with a young, fresh voice. See this piece about the Univision broadcast of the Democratic debate for a sense of their style.
