It is an honor and a privilege for those of us who are part of Revista Latina to be here today to receive the 2022 Ohtli Award, the highest award for those who, during their pilgrimage around the world, have not hesitated, nor do they hesitate, to mark their path. This, so that the new generations of young Mexicans in search of opportunities to make or remake their lives, can follow them.
We express our deepest gratitude to the Government of Mexico and to the Consul General of Mexico in the Carolinas, Claudia Velasco Osorio, for delivering this great recognition.

Last Wednesday, August 27 of this year, the Consulate General of Mexico in Raleigh became the scene of a unique and emotional event directed by the Consul General of Mexico, Claudia Velasco Osorio: the presentation of the book "El Arte. Espejo de an Immigrant. Story of Cornelio Campos", written by María del Refugio Sandoval Olivas, affectionately known as Cuquis Sandoval. This book combines the richness of the narrative with the chronicle of a life marked by migration and a passion for art.
