"At the end of the day, everybody is here for one reason - to impact and influence the Hispanic community. SHPE is building you up to become a professional leader. When you do become that leader, make sure you always give back."
College- Texas A&M, Corpus Christi
"SHPE started for me when I was a sophomore at Texas A&M, Corpus Christi. I was just walking to class and saw a flyer in the halls that said 'Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers.' I didn't know what that meant but I was interested in internship opportunities, scholarships, networking, and professional development so I had to check it out."
"My parents didn't want me moving. They wanted me to stay local. But they know that I'm doing something that's not only going to benefit myself, but also my future family. And I can impact the community I came from."
