Carlos has been regularly recognized for his ability to communicate effectively, collaborate, and create workshops impacting underserved communities. Carlos has a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and an Entrepreneurial degree from Drucker School of Management. But, before all of the aforementioned, Carlos overcame many battles.
At 13 years old, he ran away from home into the streets. He became homeless, addicted to drugs and started stealing. By 14 he had become a gang member and criminal. It was at the age of 19 when he was sent to prison with a 20 year sentence for armed robbery.
A decade into his sentence, Carlos was placed in solitary confinement for 3 years and, within that time, transformed his life. He was released in 2021 after serving 17 years of the 20 in maximum security prison.
