Hector Hernandez-Arroyo and is a Senior majoring in Business Administration with a Concentration in Management.

During a pandemic in 2020, Hector felt there was a need to motivate his peers to keep going despite the circumstances. He Co-Founded the Association of Latino Professionals for America (ALPFA) here at UNCG. This organization focuses on empowering Latino/a students by providing members with networking opportunities, information about scholarships, and internships. 

ALPFA members have volunteered in the MLK Day of Service, BackPack Beginnings, and have accumulated over 75 hours of volunteer work. Members of this organization have also served as mentors for the summer camp UNCG CHANCE, Campamento Hispano Abriendo Nuestro Camino a la Educación, where they had an opportunity to guide high school campers about college life. 

Through ALPHA, Latino/a students have found their voices and they want to be heard within the UNCG community. They want to break generational barriers and build generational wealth. “We must all have the resources necessary to succeed in our desired field/industry.”
