Born to Dominican parents, I was raised in Sleepy Hollow, NY about 45 minutes north of New York City. With a degree in Supply Chain Management from Syracuse University, I’m currently a Global Operations Consultant working in the international commercial insurance space.

Why Did You Create S&D?
Scholarship and representation are important to me because I understand the impact they can have on the college entrance process. I feel that it is important for BIPOC students to see professionals in the workforce that look like themselves and share similar upbringings. I feel that if we can, we should do our part to make an impact and provide the necessary support that students like us need. My goal is to accomplish this through meaningful and strong partnerships with donors and corporations.
Why Is Scholarship Important?
When the opportunity to start a scholarship with friends (all minorities, no less) presented itself, I jumped at the chance to influence the lives of students facing the same obstacles that I myself faced growing up in an underserved community.
What Do You Envision For S&D?
Scholar & A Dream has already evolved into more than what was envisioned at its inception. In the near future, I hope to expand the applicant pool and build up the framework for an apprenticeship/internship pipeline that will provide scholars with experience in the workforce.
