What is your involvement in CREW Orlando?
MillerKnoll is a close to 15-year legacy sponsor of CREW Orlando. I personally have participated in 6 of those years while also contributing to multiple committees such as UCREW, Member Services, Communications and DEI.
How has your heritage shaped the person you are today?
One of the many great things about being Puerto Rican is that we are extremely proudful people. Pridefulness in my opinion leads to self-confidence which is an important asset needed to believe in one’s own skills, goals, and ability to succeed. It is that pridefulness and self-confidence that has helped me achieve my personal and professional success.
Why is Hispanic Heritage Month important to you?
Hispanic Heritage Month is important to me because it celebrates the histories, cultures, and contributions of our ancestors. Hispanics take up a very large percentage of the US population which I believe has helped us to become the most powerful country in the world.
