Who is Ruben Ramirez?

Born in McAllen, TX in June 1982, Ruben R. Ramirez is a lifelong resident of the Rio Grande Valley; having left only for college and military service. He was raised between two homes following his young parents’ separation and divorce at the age of 4. While he never had the traditional family unit, the love, values and skills he learned and developed from each household were strong and are ever present today. Throughout his life many people have had positive impacts in Ruben’s life; however, Ruben accounts most of his success in life to two truly inspirational people: his grandmother Raquel and his father Ruben. They gave him an understanding of what hard work was like with minimum education but that it was not an excuse to be lazy or dependent on the government. Because of his trials and tribulations, Ruben understands the struggles of poverty, but he also understands the ability and responsibility for people to bring themselves out. Read More
