Robert Goicochea - Define American

Robert Goicochea

Hollywood, FL

My father sacrificed his 2 children and wife to come to America alone and pave the way for us to have a better life. My father left my country when I was 6 and my mother followed him 3 years later, leaving my brother and I behind, I was not able to hold my parents again until I was 12, because they could not come back to see us. But sacrifices are harder when the payoff if great, my brother and I are now professionals and have families of our own that we can provide a comfortable lifestyle, things that we did not have the privilege to enjoy as kids.

It's time for a new conversation about immigration in America, and it starts with us.
