Over 45 years ago, my parents fled from Cuba without a penny to their name to escape the Communist government there. Everything that I am or ever will be, I owe in large part to them. That is why it is with great pleasure that I announce the creation of a non-profit to help foreign nationals achieve their educational goals: Asylees as Authors. Because scholarships helped me get to college, university and law school, they are now available to asylees and refugees.
The Weston law firm of Blandon Law works hard to help foreign nationals to obtain asylum. Likewise, I am starting this non-profit to let asylees and refugees obtain higher education. The scholarships -- $5,000 for first place and $1,000 for second place -- are awarded based on an annual short story contest.
