If you know me, you know that my family is more important to me than anything. I take so much pride in my family and our story all because of my grandpa. My grandpa left home when he was a teenager and traveled the country as a migration worker picking fruit, cotton, and the occasional sticks and rocks to make his bag heavier so he could bring home more money for food to his family.
He eventually made his way to Illinois where he met my grandma. He worked for a machinery company, which my family now owns. The shop was his pride and joy, second only to our family. My grandpa was my biggest cheerleader and my hero wrapped into one.
I walk for my grandpa Salinas.
