    The University Programing Council welcomes journalist Jose Antonio Vargas.
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The University Programing Council welcomes Jose Antonio Vargas. A journalist for over a decade, writing for some of the most prestigious news organizations in the country, Jose Antonio Vargas’ personal journey contends with some of the most fascinating stories he’s covered, living a double life since he was 16 years old. After being born and reared in the Philippines, his mother, wanting to give her son a better life, sent him to live with his grandparents in Silicon Valley in 1993. Vargas loved his new homeland and immersed himself in American culture, spoke the language perfectly, studied hard in school and loved writing for the school paper. However, at 16-years-old, when applying for his learner’s permit, he discovered his green card was a fake, which was later confirmed by his grandfather. Vargas then realized he needed to continue hiding his true identity to avoid deportation and be able to pursue his American dream – a career in journalism. Vargas will discuss his long career in journalism, his website, DefineAmerican.com, and he will delve into his personal life's journey which will address issues that are facing our world today, including illegal immigration and trying to navigate life in America as an openly gay male.
