Julio Bernal / Tacoma Park, Maryland


Tell me a story that shaped your life…


- Growing up listening to my parents talk to my grandparents and aunt and uncles about all the sacrifices they had to make just to come to this country and for a chance to get ahead in life and grant future generations something better. That has almost always help me make decisions about my life or my family....no matter the struggle always push forward.

Tell me a story that almost ruined your life…


- Getting a phone call while on vacation from a number I didn’t know telling me that they were with the police and that my younger brother was found dead and that I needed to come home asap.

Tell me a story that enriched your life…


- Don’t know if this counts but my mom would always tell me how life was back home for her and how all the war and fighting was tearing apart families and towns and And that she would always want to get away because she wanted a better life. My mother grew up in El Salvador during their civil war and came here shortly after it started when a good portion of the country migrated here to live behind the violence. I count myself lucky that my mother made it here and that I was born here she definitely went thru some hardships to make sure we (My brothers and sister) Had a better life then the one she left behind.
