Do you ever get angry when people stereotype you without giving you the chance to know you? Have you ever thought that maybe it is not a personal attack but just a sign of ignorance? 

Luis helped me realized that getting mad or angry is not necessarily helpful, although I get it, it can be so frustrating! In today’s episode we talk about how can we all start to educate others with our example, showing to the world who we really are, beyond those stereotypes. 

Today Luis Duque is sharing his journey and challenges as well as some creative ways on how to overcome those difficult moments. 

Luis moved to the USA from Colombia with the amazing opportunity to play tennis and go to college.

We also talked about Luis' podcast "Engineering our Future" where he empowers young professionals by sharing real stories of success and failures.
