CON MI GENTE: More Than Just a Bike
EDINBURG – For over two years Brandon Ramirez would get up at 4:30 a.m. and ride his bicycle across the bridge from Matamoros to Brownsville.
There he would board a college shuttle to attend class.
Now, he just graduated as an automotive engineer.
His parents bought him the bicycle for $40 at a flea market.
Besides his parents, it was his college dean, who kept talking to him and pushing him.
From Matamoros Brandon would ride his bike to the Brownsville Campus, and then take the university shuttle to UTRGV in Edinburg to attend classes.
