AVANZA Network visits HISD

Harlandale ISD middle schools and STEM ECHS received visits from MIT Alumni that are a part of AVANZA Network, a national organization founded by MIT Mexican-American alumni and friends.

The AVANZA Network is passionate about inspiring the next generation of Mexican-American and underprivileged students to pursue their dreams through a strong education while providing a support network along the way.

MIT Alumni spoke to students and shared their stories about their upbringing and struggles. They offered guidance and advice on how to overcome those struggles and achieve their goals.

MIT Alumni ’90 Dr. Jacob Rael is a Professor at UCLA and enjoys talking to students from all over the country to show them that any dream is achievable and that it’s okay to ask for help to achieve those dreams.

“In my experience it’s really hard to accomplish things on your own.” Rael says, “So the more people you have in your corner, the bigger chance you will have to succeed.”

AVANZA Network believes that together we can advance and further contribute to society.
