Profile: An Immigrant’s Drive to Succeed

HUNTER COLLEGE–At 5 A.M. with nothing but the chirp of a bird to wake him, Angel Fernandez will open his eyes and step out of bed.

He gets up six days a week with the same mindset. A drive to work, he said, gave him the courage to leave his country.

Fernandez emigrated from a small town in Ecuador and crossed the Mexican border to do so.
