Raul Ramos y Sanchez

Country of origin: Cuba

As the 100th immigrant featured in my blog, I present Raul Ramos y Sanchez:

Cuban-born Raul Ramos y Sanchez grew up in Miami’s cultural stew before becoming a long-time resident of the U.S. Midwest. After a successful career in advertising that included founding an ad agency with offices in Ohio and California, Ramos turned to more personally significant work. This began with developing a documentary for public television, Two Americas: The Legacy of our Hemisphere and also creating — an online forum for the U.S. immigrant community.

To see the rest of his biography, check out his website here. Also, you may find the following interviews of interest:

audio interview

CNN interview (in Spanish with English subtitles)

And of course, last but not least his immigrant blog can be found here, with the following description:

Statistics do not tell the story of immigration. People do. Since its inception, this nation has been continually infused with the energy of newcomers. Yet their assimilation has seldom been smooth. The challenges we face today are not new. Only the stories are.
