Isn't it time to hear an uplifting story? Oscar Ozete, retired professor and author of !Animo! Living in Different Worlds, shares stories of his immigration from Havana, Cuba, to New York's Bronx. Uproariously funny, yet tender, Ozete's desire to fit in was no different than any child. He found that he was pulled in two directions, not quite mixing into the Bronx, and becoming less like his peers in Cuba. The struggles of youth fueled his !Animo! - otherwise known as courage and spirit; two pillars of strength he needs as he enters another struggle late in life.
