Born in Lima, Peru during the Maoist guerilla uprising of the early 80's, Julio Cesar Tello began his life amidst the violence and poverty of a nation in crisis. His parents, a nurse and factory manager took initiative, fleeing the country when superinflation hit and guerillas struck down a family member. Decades would pass before Julio finally returned to see his homeland and the family he had left behind.
And so began a new chapter of his life on the final day of that long awaited return. Both seeing the conditions and hearing the stories of those less fortunate in his country he made a promise to himself and his people; a promise that he would return to assist and help his country grow.
