The story Israel Gonzalez told at Odyssey's "Home" show in 2015 might be, in his words, a buzzkill, but if you listen closely, some inspiration can be found. And if you stay until the end, some poetry can be found, as well. From Israel's Odyssey bio:
Israel Gonzalez is a Mexican American who was born in California but has spent most of his life in South Tucson. He is an AmeriCorps member and a GED graduate attending college to pursue a degree in science and engineering. But he also loves to write poetry and dreams of making it big. He couldn't tell you which he loves more, math or poetry. Either way, he has the formula down and he will never give up.
This episode was performed and recorded in front of a live audience at The Screening Room in Tucson, Arizona, on October 1st, 2015, and was curated by Jen Nowicki Clark. For more information about Odyssey Storytelling, please visit www.odysseystorytelling.com
