Sergio was one of the first children to grow up at Amigos de Jesus, arriving in 2001. He was the first of the Amigos de Jesus family to graduate from high school, earning a High School degree in Agriculture in 2007 and transitioned to independence as an employee of our agriculture program in 2012, ascending into a leadership role in 2017.
