"His show gave us an insight on real cultural diversity."

I would like to thank you for the wonderful opportunity that CIA Speakers gave us, in bringing Mr. Teja Arboleda to our campus. He is such a pleasant and funny person to talk to. We were delighted with his show, Ethnic Man! His show gave us an insight on real cultural diversity.

"His presentation was humorous and entertaining"

Teja Arboleda (Ethnic Man) was wonderful, everyone who attended really enjoyed his presentation. Teja really got the students to think about issues they may have not thought about before and to reflect on their own ethnic background. He went beyond what was expected and really made an impact on people. His presentation was humorous and entertaining yet his message came across seriously as he made each point non confrontational. I believe all students should have the opportunity to hear Teja's message. It is extremely important in today's diverse population. - Texas Tech University
