The stories of all people have great benefit and value. I like all stories of inspiration, of dreams come true, and even the ones that don’t turn out well, that lessons can be learned from. Cuéntame has a meaning of count me in, or tell me your story. The Cuéntame organization feels that the stories of Latino’s is not very well-known.
This is precisely the reason why it becomes even more important to tell the true stories of families who work hard day in and day out to build and rebuild their homes. To share the daily struggles that migrants faced working the fields making pennies and contributing actively to the economy — not only by paying taxes (a fact often gone unreported) but through the rich cultural and social traditions that they offer. To give a glimpse into the millions of individuals, students, families who can relate their success stories, their positive contributions and their giving back selflessly. To highlight the arts, the music, the films and the diversity that makes this country special. These are the true Latino voices that need to be told. We at Cuéntame (which translates into count me in or tell me your story) have told ours and have collected thousands more through hundreds of videos produced over the past couple of years that cover all these. We need more — we need to unify those voices and tell the millions that have yet to be told. Through spaces like Latino Voices and like Cuéntame we can accomplish that goal. What is your story. ¡Cuéntame!
