Journalist, trailblazer, leader. These are just some of the words I could use to define Jorge Ramos, a man who I had the tremendous opportunity to interview at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum at Harvard University. For those of you who may not have heard of him, where have you been? Ramos is Univision’s Noticiero news anchor, host of the Sunday-morning political show, Al Punto, and host of America, a new, millennial-focused, news show on Fusion. He began his career as a journalist in Mexico but, after facing censorship in 1983, he decided to immigrate to the United States and has stayed here ever since. He is known for his tough interviews, unique style, and strong advocacy for Latino and immigrant rights in the United States.
