He coached UPR students in the Buddy Program Committee, and so far, five of his buddies joined Accenture. In the DC-HAERG, he currently works as the Professional Development Committee Co-Lead. Working in this committee he has helped Hispanics and non-Hispanics grow their careers by organizing various events that focus on technical knowledge, company knowledge, networking, and industry skills. Helping others go through the same path he did is how he gives back to the community.
