Adriana Flores-Ragade didn't know English when she came to the US at the tender age of 12. Just one year later however, she was taking main stream classes.
Driven is a good word to describe Adriana.
She suceeded in school and she made it her life's work to give back to the community. She worked in education and the American Red Cross, listening to loved ones' stories who were giving their DNA to identify remains from the 9-11 terrorist attack.
Now she has a podcast and owes much of the success to Jared Easley and Dan Franks for creating the 30 day challenge to launch a podcast.
