Chris was born in Puerto Rico and raised in the Syracuse area. He had the unique opportunity to live in his family's home country, the Dominican Republic, for two years. For him, this was one of the most impactful time periods of his life. Chris experienced a sub-standard education system and saw extreme poverty throughout the Caribbean nation. When his family decided to return to the United States, he was a different person. Chris understood that not everyone has the opportunities that he does. This motivated him to become more focused and proactive in his life.
