Miguel spoke with young adults at a local technical college about careers in technology.[/caption] Miguel graduated from Roger C. Sullivan High School in Rogers Park, Chicago and now works as a wireless consulting engineer at CDW. He is raising three children with his wife and still finds significant time to volunteer with the youth of Chicago. Miguel began working with Lumity in 2013 to share his story with students with the hopes of providing guidance and inspiration. Miguel brings real world experience to youth between the ages of 14 and 24 (both in and out of high school) in diverse, underserved neighborhoods of Chicago. He gives students a view into the possibilities for their own lives, because they can see themselves in his story of growing up poor, being drawn into a gang and his successful effort to leave gang life behind and build an IT career that allows him to provide for a life he never dreamed possible when he was in high school. His efforts can help students see the value of breaking the cycle of drugs and violence.
