“When I entered the university, some other blind people told me ‘how are you going to be an engineer?’ Before you, other blind people have already tried and have not succeeded, the race is inaccessible, but I did not listen to them; I just wanted to fly over”, said the newly graduate.

“I am so proud of my son! I still remember when he told me he wanted to enter the TEC. And with great effort we got him an apartment; I came, I left him, and all the way back to San Ramón, I cried scared”, recalled his father.

The new engineer works at the TEC creating special programs to help other people in the same blindness condition.
