Who goes with you on your journey to the American Dream?

'Your Fellow Americans' visits the Caudillo Family, Part 4

Share this story

Three generations of the Caudillo family discuss what is truly important to them: education and service.

This week’s video spends time with three generations of the Caudillo family – grandparents Velia and Mac Salazar, parents Irene and Ryan Caudillo, and grandchildren Julian, Sophia and Olivia.

Their dreams and aspirations for the future all revolve around taking advantage of the opportunities available to them while working and serving others.

The question is, who do you take with you on that journey to your American Dream? We have to appreciate the opportunities we have to attain that dream, but we have to pull with us those that have less opportunities. – Ryan Caudillo

KCPT’s Hale Center for Journalism presents Your Fellow Americans, a documentary web series exploring race, immigration and the American Dream. In this pilot season, join multiple generations from six different families as they discuss their American experience around the dinner table.
