My grandpa's father Rudy Bukovec, immigrated to the United States from Slovenia. His family had a small farm in Slovenia and his goal was to come to Cleveland and work to be part of the American Dream. In Cleveland, he started a meat market because he did not want to work in the factories. The market is over 100 years old and is known as Rudy's Quality Meats. My grandpa, Chuck and his recently deceased brother Rudy still run the business, which is located in Willowick, Ohio. I am here because of my great grandfather's strength and aspirations. Thank you, Rudy, for giving me the opportunity to have a voice.
