Ambassador Miguel Basáñez congratulated Óscar Vázquez for his professional and personal achievements and for being selected to receive a special invitation to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address.

During the meeting, Óscar Vázquez was accompanied by his wife, Karla. The Ambassador and Mr. Vázquez agreed that the latter’s personal story as a mechanical engineer who graduated from Arizona State University is an inspiration for thousands of young Mexicans who seek to continue their higher education in the United States.
