My ANSO Story
AT1 USN to IT1 USNR. ANSO was the missing link that helped me establish the Hispanic Sailor Association onboard USS Harry S. Truman. Their legitimacy helped us get the support we needed to obtain support from the chain of command. ANSO helped develop my leadership skills by giving me the opportunity to serve as Vice President for the Norfolk Chapter, and also gave me the unique opportunity of conducting an interview with Univision NY. This interview led to two more interviews during Hispanic Heritage Month. ANSO connected me with Hispanics Inspiring Students’ Performance and Achievement (HISPA) and I was able to volunteer virtually as a mentor for Middle School students. I can’t speak enough great things about ANSO and they will forever hold a special part in my career.
