In March, Andres Camargo returned to Colombia after 20 years away from his native country.
Camargo was visiting coffee farmers in the mountain town of Trujillo in Valle, Colombia, an area marred by cartel-related violence during the 1980s and 1990s.
And, like so many others, Camargo’s parents took him and his siblings and left.
They emigrated to Connecticut in 1999.
“It was very hard to succeed and live around those years in Colombia. There was a lot of violence,” Camargo said.
