PHARR, Texas (KVEO) -- It was an out of this world visit for thousands of Texas students when former NASA Astronaut Jose Hernandez spoke at a "Migrants in Action" conference at the Pharr Event Center.

"I'm here to motivate them and tell them it is okay to dream big, I mean I used to dream of being an astronaut and going to the stars, I grew up as a migrant worker," Hernandez said.

During the conference Hernandez spoke to students about his challenges in life and growing up as a migrant worker in California. For the students hearing his story meant a lot.
