Leonardo attends Wake Young Men's Leadership Academy in Raleigh, NC. His career goal is to become a licensed Physical Therapist or a psychologist so that he can help others improve their quality of life and contribute to society's well-being. He is passionate about serving and encouraging others and embodying servant leadership. When Leonardo was little, his father, sister, and he would do service projects together. They collected over two thousand pounds of food at his Elementary school for a local food bank. They participated in several county-led park cleaning days. Helping and serving others so that we can all progress and move forward was instilled within his core belief structure early in life. Leonardo currently works at Food Lion and enjoys playing football with my friends.
