How it all started
I was born and raised in Ciudad Acuña, Coahuila, Mexico. I learned English when I was 7 years old. For many years I was a transnational student, as we crossed the border daily for school. I fell through the cracks and failed high school.
Higher education was not in the plans for me. I joined the U.S. Army Reserves to give back to the USA for taking us in as immigrants. As a soldier in basic training I had my epiphany moment. My life goals, and the trajectory of my life changed.
