“I decided to become an active member of RISE to meet up-and-coming civic leaders who were interested in being involved with the community.
In just a year, I have met individuals involved through United Way's RISE and the El Paso Young Leaders Society (YLS) programs who have inspired and encouraged me to continue participating.
I continue to learn from this pool of talented professionals and feel the need to share with other rising young professionals how important it is to get more involved and give back to El Paso.”
