I wanted to thank the Long Island Business News for their continued support throughout the years. Last night I was awarded with the LIBN Leadership in Law Award for my commitment to the Long Island community, and in particular, the Hispanic youth community. My passion for enriching the lives of young Hispanics in Nassau and Suffolk County has been a passion of mine since I was young. The joy of encouraging their engagement and participation in their own education and future, through internships and scholarships has brought so much positivity and fulfillment to my own life. Thank you to Long Island Business News for this encouraging award; I look forward to doing you proud and continuing to build a legacy bright future for Long Island’s tomorrow!
