Ernesto Mejia, the proud son of Mexican immigrants, is a true example of the American dream. Diagnosed with the rare disease of Guillain-Barré Syndrome at the age of 16 that left him temporarily paralyzed, he was not supposed to be a successful student, much less a College Dean of Students. Through his hardships, Ernesto learned to never give up on life. A founding member of the SLiCK program, Ernesto now speaks to students, parents and teachers about overcoming obstacles and never giving up on the American dream: education.
