An Unlikely Journey: Waking Up from My American Dream
Opportunity. There was one individual I really wanted to meet after reading Julian Castro’s memoir titled An Unlikely Journey: his mother. This no-nonsense loving person propelled Julian and his twin, Joaquin, to superior educational opportunities at Stanford and Harvard, and on to roles of service for others at high levels of government. This is a quintessential American story, and also a Latino assimilation story as big as all Texas. Whether you’re politically aligned with Castro’s views or not, reading this memoir will give you renewed hope in how the American dream remains alive.
