American Familia

American Familia Summary

Dream Big. Become More.

Told as a conversation between David and his two sons, American Familia is David’s story of growing up in rural poverty in Puerto Rico and urban poverty in the United States, detailing hopeful and transformative life-lessons along the way.

This is also his family’s story: one of faith, grit, and empowerment. Part memoir and part rallying cry, this book encourages discounted youth with a vision of hope that they, too, can transcend their environment and situation—and achieve more, be more, and become more. David’s story provides guidance on how to overcome challenges in the face of great pressure and gives direction on how to develop purpose and embrace opportunities with courage and personal responsibility.
