Background on Gustavo Suarez:
After blowing out close to USD$500K back in 2008 due to bad business ventures & the US Great Recession, no money, and a deportation letter from immigration on my desk. I thought it was over for me. Back in 2011, I met my mentor. He believed in me and helped me to dream bigger than I thought. A few years later, I turned my life around. I graduated as a petroleum engineer and successfully built 2 companies that provide me with the financial foundation that allows me to do what I love the most: Help my community.
"I told my self that giving back could not stop here. I received a life changing benefit and now it is time for me to pass the ball. This is why I decided to start a self-funded scholarship with a mentoring component. The STEM recipients have been selected by the committee who kindly donated their time to make this a reality.
