Director of Creative Programs
Danny Benavidez has no exciting story to tell, only one to begin. He has spent most of his life in Brownsville, Texas, and felt like he was living in a manufacturing facility. You wake up, go to work, go home, and that’s it. The type of thinking from previous generations influenced his decisions for most of his life. After learning about how millennials can change society, he found a cause worth fighting for; no longer were the days of feeling small, as he learned one’s ideas are anything but.
He has also been a Physics student at Baylor University in Waco, Texas since 2013.
