  • The Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute helped me develop professional skills that can't be learned in a classroom. Being able to have this experience is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. I currently work for Congressman Will Hurd (TX-23) as a District Representative. My experience with CHLI prepared me for this role and I am truly honored to be an alumna of such a wonderful organization.
