Finding a Place to Stand
Actor and playwright Vicente Guzmán-Orozco ’92 got through life’s tough spots with the help of a great teacher

From the Fall 2010 Caller
Twelve-year-old Vicente Guzmán-Orozco loved growing up in Colima, a small and pretty city on Mexico’s southwest coast. Although his parents had moved to Oregon to work in the fields of Washington County, his strong, vibrant grandmother provided a haven for him. He had an innate talent for performance, nurtured in theater and dance classes. Vicente’s world was safe and comfortable, and then it burst apart.
