Learn About Hector
As a single father coming from an underprivileged upbringing, Hector knew all too well the feeling that the odds were stacked against him. But he wasn’t going to let that fear of failure keep him down.
Hector joined the Army in 1992 and served six years at Fort Jackson where he learned to embrace the fear of failure and let it drive him to succeed. Through dedication and perseverance, Hector finished his undergraduate and master’s degrees at AMU and is currently working on his PhD dissertation.
His greatest joy now is seeing the impact his pursuit of higher education has had on his son and others around him. Hector feels a sense of accomplishment and knows that others are looking to him for inspiration. With the skills he’s learned at AMU, he hopes to help build bridges so others can get to where he is now.
