My experience with Southwestern Advantage started off when i was an immature freshman, who thought he knew everything. It took me a bit of time for me to get past my initial fears and ego, but I knew I was up for some adventure. Now 5 years later, having traveled and worked everywhere in the US, Mexico, and Europe, I’m proud to serve families and change the lives of my peers. I’m excited to see what the future has in store for me.
