Diversity is a strenght (La diversidad es una fortaleza)


Dare to love.

Mateo has returned from the Christmas holidays to attend his last semester at Columbia University. Life is going according to his plans; he is the top of his class, and his future looks promising. The cherry on top is securing the much-coveted scholarship at the UN that Professor Scott awards to a single student each year.

On the first day of classes, Mateo is summoned by his professor, thinking he will be told he has been chosen for the vacancy…but no, the university needs his help for an event with high-profile guests. Mateo will be in charge of receiving, accompanying, and attending to Gabriel Cortez, one of the most influential young people with an impressive track record in the media and American politics. Mateo accepts, thinking this will bring the scholarship closer to his hands.

The night before the event, one of the state senators announces his retirement after more than thirty years of service and publicly supports Gabriel to be his successor.

Mateo is in charge of accompanying Gabriel, and from their first interaction, the spark between them is evident. Gabriel realizes Mateo’s dedication, intellect, and commitment. And Mateo sees how Gabriel is empathetic and sensitive regardless of condition.

As the event passes, Mateo stays in touch with Gabriel, and he offers him a part-time job. Naturally, among respect, admiration, and long walks through the city streets, love arises. When Gabriel decides to run for candidacy, they both decide to keep their relationship secret.

At the end of the course, Professor Scott informs Mateo that he has been chosen for the scholarship, but he rejects it, wanting to support Gabriel in his campaign. On the day of the campaign launch, Gabriel arrives in a hurry, runs to the stage, and as the countdown begins, from ten to zero, he tells Mateo that he wants to dare to compete, but with him by his side. He unexpectedly takes his hand, and they go out on stage together. The audience bursts into applause upon discovering this new couple.

Mateo realizes that his entire life has just changed completely and forever. Now, he is a public figure. Mateo will have to face a wave of doubts about his reputation, baseless conspiracies, and criticism, until he breaks and gives up everything, even his relationship with Gabriel. He has no choice but to take a train back with his parents.

Eventually, he will find his way back, guided by a renewed strength full of acceptance and love.
