SHPE has given me the opportunity to help our Hispanic community, from awareness and being able to provided information how to apply for school and financial aid. I am very grateful that I have my SHPE family and that I was able to help other Hispanics achieve higher education.

It became my family and my support system. I have found mentors that have pushed me to excel in engineering. To me it is extremely important to give back to my community and to the next generation of engineers. SHPE has made me a better engineer and a better leader.
