Venezuelan named Provost of MIT

Dr. Rafael Reif, from Venezuela, was named provost of MIT. Reif migrated to the US in the mid 70s to pursue graduate studies.

He’s one of those Latinos that made his way to the top through hard work and God-given talent.

I’m incredibly proud as a Venezuelan, as Hispanic and, of course, as a Latin-geek.

You can read the MIT announcement and Dr. Reif’s bio.
