Host Isabel Garcia talks with Alumnus Jose Bolivar '14, Academics Program Manager for Houston Independent School District Emerge Program, and his former student, current UST junior and computer science major Fernando Quintero. Jose was Fernando's teacher in high school and encouraged him to apply to UST because of the benefits of a Catholic, liberal arts education. After helping Fernando receive the same scholarship Jose had while at UST, the two formed a bond that continues to allow them to strive to impact others through education and liberal arts.
This episode of BOLD is a little different, instead of Alex Yemeck interviewing members of the UST community, Darnell Miller, Producer, turns the tables on Alex and sits down with the host to learn about him.
Yemeck shares insights about moving from Cameroon to America, setting up a non-profit and some of the challenges of returning to school. He also shares the origin story of BOLD.
