As a Salvadoran immigrant and devoted member of the community, Brayan Cubias has been able to make his dream come true.
Cubias, un residente del condado de Prince Georges, is the youngest superintendent of the company S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows. He translates for the immigrant workers on the team y se asegura que esten usando su equipo de seguridad.
He looks after his co-workers by translating for their personal needs, such as tickets. He feels as though it helps him stay connected to his people and care for them.
Cubias came to the U.S. from El Salvador when was ten years old. He grew up in poverty and was raised on a farm. His mother was a single mom and he says que tuvo que convertirse en el hombre de la casa a una edad temprana to take care of his three younger siblings.
He says that as a Hispanic person, haces lo que puedes para sobrevivir.
“Ser hispano es apoyar y ayudar a la gente que lo necesiten y tener la habilidad de hacer la diferencia porque la podemos hacer.”
