Increase resources for minority and low-income students.
The values, hopes, and aspirations Brandon’s parents brought from Honduras have blanketed him and his brothers since they were young. He uses the adversity he faces as motivation to help others and learn as much as possible. Brandon has a deep-rooted love of music. The complexity, messages, and emotions found in music push him to listen to all genres in various languages. He learns about other cultures and their values by listening to their music.
Brandon cares deeply about his Colorado Springs community. As a volunteer with the Rocky Mountain Field Institute, he works to maintain trails at Garden of the Gods and Cheyenne Canon. This ensures that wildlife and humans who use them are able to continue to do so for years to come. At Care and Share Food Bank, he packs up boxes of food so community members in need can easily access meals. Brandon says volunteering not only fulfills his passion to give back but gives him the opportunity to strengthen relationships in the community as well. As a future engineer and business owner, he hopes to continue on this path.
