Conversations with Deep Thinkers is a powerful forum for learning and inquiry. In these one-hour teleconference calls, Ron Walker engages prominent leaders in an inquiry that is focused on COSEBOC's 2020 theme: Boys of Color: Learning from the Footprints of the Past, Taking Footsteps to the Future. These conversations are followed by a Q&A inviting audience participation. The goal of this series is to create, deepen and strengthen the capacity of educators and advocates dedicated to the affirmative development of boys and young men of color.

Bio: Martin Miranda Bustos

Martin Miranda BustosMy name is Martin Miranda Bustos and I was born and raised in East San Jose, California. My roots come from Jalisco, Mexico where my parents and ancestors are from. I come from hard working and humble family who have passed down the teachings of what it means to be an honorable person. I was introduced to Joven Noble when I attended a High School on the East Side called Mt. Peasant where I graduated from in 2017.

I am currently a student at De Anza Community College where I am working towards receiving my Associates Degree in Criminal Justice. I am looking to pursue a career as a police officer and impact my community in a good way. I am connected to the National Compadres Network because I am a graduate from the Joven Noble Program. I stay connected because the teachings have helped me be a better individual and has taught me the value of serving my community. I look to become part of the next generation of community leaders.
