Anthony Romero: My parents were always supportive. My parents always believed that I could be whatever I wanted to be. I remember when I first told my father I wanted to go to Princeton or Yale, and I chose Princeton, he asked me how much would the tuition cost and I would say, “Twenty-eight thousand dollars, Papi.” And he said, “That’s more than I make in a year!” He didn’t know about financial aid. He didn’t know that I would get loans, he didn’t know that there were scholarships. But my parents were always very supportive. When I said I wanted to do something, they said, “Okay, try.” And they never stopped me, in fact, they always encouraged me. So when I told them I wanted to be a lawyer, I wanted to go to an Ivy League school, and I wanted to serve the public interest, they were always very supportive. When I finished law school, and my father asked me what would my first salary be as a full-time attorney, and I told him it would be about $32,000 dollars a year, he smiled at me and he said, “Now I make more money than that.” And I said, “Yeah, but I’m learning how to change the world, Dad.” And he always would be a bit chagrined. My sister is a social worker, and I always worked in the public service sector, and my father always would say, “What did I do wrong? Why did none of these kids go out and make a lot of money?” And we’d always say back to him, “Dad, you did it right. You taught us our values. You taught us to make a difference in the world.” So they were always very supportive and loving.
