Abstract

Everyone faces barriers and setbacks through their journey, but what makes these barriers and set backs different? Well we are looking at Latinos in specific because their barriers and setbacks can be different than a person that isn’t Latino or of a minority group. I want to focus on this subject because some of these experiences that these individuals have gone through might not be relatable to some people. Being part of CWU Latino Triunfar, we go out and interview Latinos that are in higher job positions in neighboring cities and get a glimpse of the work that they are doing and the journey that they have had to go through in order to get to the place that they are in today. Being in this group has helped me gather information first hand. I asked what barriers and set backs they have encountered and also asked them what they did in order to overcome these experiences. From this I was able to see that there was a trend in the barriers. Such as language, lack of education, and discrimination. In conclusion I was able to find a trend in the barriers and setbacks that these Latinos had encountered. However, individuals that I interviewed said that the future for upcoming Latinos looks bright and that maybe future generations won’t have the same barriers that they encountered because they felt like society is changing and not making it so hard for future Latinos to advance into greater careers.
