Mayor Segarra is a very impressive man! What great advice his mother gave him about the importance of respecting himself and respecting others and he'll get through anything. That's a powerful message.

Mayor Segarra is an example of what America and President Lincoln's values/actions represent - we are a land of opportunity and have the freedom to pursue our dreams. His point of 'having to do the work' is important for our youth to hear and he's been a strong role model for them in the Hartford community. My family has been greatly impacted by the 'ugly' side of urban youth and the tragedy that will transpire when education and hard work are not values in the community. His message to seek and take advantage of opportunity, and the fact it won't be easy, is important for our youth to hear and have an example such as Mayor Segarra to follow.

I really enjoyed hearing Mayor Segarra speaking about his supportive family and the role community college had in his success. He expressed many thoughts that resonated with me, but one in particular was the importance of community involvement in order to create change. Great interview!
