“I believe that the drive to the American Dream involves a proper education beginning in the earliest years. That is why when I was informed of an opportunity to make a difference in this area, I jumped at the chance. Joining ECMHSP BOD has allowed me time to reflect upon who I am, where I came from, and my place in this part of the world. I specially re-connect with many aspects of my Mexican heritage. The importance of family and friends, and of the lifetime relationships I maintain with them. The food, of course. From tacos de canasta, cabrito, and mole, to Christmas' tamales, buñuelos, and bacalao. More importantly, serving on the board of directors has given me time to remember those that through their hard work and tireless efforts opened doors and created opportunities for me and others so that we may thrive in this country we call home,” Abel said.
