Today, Eder is a successful New York entrepreneur in the online media industry and CEO of a digital marketing company. However, as a kid in the mid-80s, he fled a frightening home life and wound up living for years on the streets of Medellin, Colombia. It was a dicey existence, in what was described during this era as the "most dangerous place on Earth", where international drug lords like Pablo Escobar ruled, where you could be shot for looking at the wrong guy the wrong way.
Dreaming of Hope Street is the story of how he went from living in the streets to become a successful entrepreneur. The book is in the classic coming-of-age tradition, and proves that, though life can be ugly and brutal, even the most disadvantaged can overcome the odds and find happiness, their own Hope Street. The narrative steps along and rings with authenticity; it's often sad, shocking, but ultimately uplifting and motivational.
