Silvia Learns About The Spurs

Roberto Martinez

A cardboard box of possessions and a heart filled with yearning to see her young son and family, were all that Siliva Alcaraz took with her when she crossed the border from Piedras Negras. She was on her way to rejoin her family and get her green card, but she couldn't have expected that she was really starting a whole new life in San Antonio.

And in classic San Antonio style, her introduction to the city was through the international ambassador program known as The San Antonio Spurs.  Listen to this sweet story of perseverance and try not to cry.

 This story was recorded for Worth Repeating September 4, 2018 at Brick. The theme was "Alien."
