Michael Pena Receives Mountain View Book Scholarship

Book scholarship Michael

Michael wrote about Rey Sanchez’s autobiography entitled My Bloody Life, an account of how his abusive childhood drove him into the Latin Kings gang and cost him his friends, his freedom, and nearly his life. Michael says that this book gave him a glimpse of what might have happened to him, had he given in to the pressures placed on him to join a gang. It also made him thankful for some of his own choices.
