If you can’t find him studying, helping at home or leading several community and school groups, you can probably find him on the soccer field. Armando has learned the delicate art of balance through the challenges he’s faced. Although they have been many, Armando has not simply stepped over the hurdles in his life, he has soared. Deeply reflective, Armando channels his energy into building bonds within his community. His leadership of MEChA demonstrates his passion for fostering unity among differences. Armando will continue his dedication to academics and service at UC Riverside where he will study biochemistry and neuroscience.
