Willie Bodega was known for making this dream happen for the Spanish people of Harlem streets. He was known to be their savior along with his good friend Edwin Nazario a lawyer. Together they worked to make the American dream happen. They helped the community by buying broke down apartments and renovating them to rent them to the poor. He gave his neighborhood whatever they ask for but in return he wanted the loyalty.
Being involved in an African American Heritage team taught me patience while learning. It also helped me realize what method of learning and remembering worked best for me. That team boosted my self-confidence because I did very well during the Black Heritage Bowl and my team won. I learned that a lot of hard work does pay off even when it seems impossible.
