#ThrowbackThursday to 1992 in my first year studying at Oxford. I was 23, I studied history, played basketball for the Oxford varsity team, met incredible folks from around the world, became a vegetarian, read hundreds of books, and had my first real opportunity to travel outside of the United Stares visiting at least two dozen countries. It was a two year experience I’m still profoundly grateful for and humbled to have had; one that broadened my understanding of the world and deepened my love and appreciation of America. I went to Oxford on a Rhodes Scholarship. I was keenly aware of the history of the scholarship and the painful history of Cecil Rhodes himself. When the scholarship was created, women and minorities were not allowed to apply. By 1992 the 95 or so scholars chosen that year were diverse and from countries all over the planet from South Africa to Canada. There is a bible verse from Luke my mother spoke to me often, “to those who much is given, much is required.” My grandfather had another valuable idea: Education is not best marked by the degrees one gets but by the service one gives. History is complex, from its wretched pain and vicious cruelty to its triumphs of spirit and phenomenal exhibitions of ingenuity, collaboration, perseverance and love. We have inherited this history and we are the ones who will now shape the future. May we, the inheritors of our ancestors struggles, sacrifices, and work, honor the blessings we inherited with how well we now serve. To those who much is given; much is required. #tbt

Selfie with my #StateOfTheUnion guest – Liz! ⠀ ⠀ Liz is a Dreamer, entrepreneur, and a very inspiring young woman. ⠀ ⠀ As a high school student, Liz excelled in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), graduating second in her class and earning a college degree in mechanical engineering. After college she launched her own logistics tech startup that has employed over 800 part-time workers.⠀ ⠀ She then went on to work for Samsung, leading STEM outreach initiatives for students in grades K-12. ⠀ ⠀ Now, Liz runs a nonprofit she founded called latinoTech, which is dedicated to helping Latinx entrepreneurs access venture capital.⠀ ⠀ But Liz's DACA status and work authorization will expire in a little over a year if President Trump refuses to find a permanent path forward for Dreamers.⠀ ⠀ I'm bringing Liz to #SOTU because I hope that her presence shows the President that Dreamers like Liz carry the flame of the American Dream forward. We must find a permanent path for them immediately.⠀ ⠀ More importantly I hope that Liz's presence will speak to every single #Dreamer in America – that we see you, we hear you, we love you and that you matter. This battle is not over.⠀ ⠀ In the words of Liz: "To paint us as things that don't deserve to be considered human beings … is the most un-American thing that could happen. And if it can happen to Dreamers, what group of people here in the United States could be next? Will we allow that?"⠀ ⠀ You can hear more from Liz on the second episode of my podcast #LiftEveryVoice!
