Cafecito Caliente had their first networking night of 2018. Our guest speaker was Juan Flores who grew up in Southwest Detroit near Mexican Town and credits his success to his upbringing in Detroit. He is extremely grateful for the circumstances, times, places and environments that surrounded his coming of age because without those experiences he would not be the person he is today. He was recently promoted to the position of Academic Advisor of the Detroit Scholars Program at Michigan State University. Juan has a Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice and a Masters degree in Clinical Social Work all from MSU. He mentioned how his move to Detroit from Mexico was an experience that many of us Michiganders could never envision. It was a step up as living conditions in Mexico weren’t the best to say the least.
Our next Cafecito Networking Night will be held Monday, May 14, 2018 from 5:30pm to 7:00 pm. The location is currently pending. Cafecito will hold these networking nights in March, May, August and October this calendar year.
