Originally from the Dominican Republic and part of the first Dominican families in Harlem, Hector is all-in on activism and ‘getting people of the matrix’; but did you know as a young boy he was a gold medal winning gymnast, in high school he was about to graduate valedictorian, and made Boston University’s basketball team?

We talk about his activism origins, the dangers of existing under a ‘slave mentality’, how non-profits sometimes create an environment forcing activists to ‘kiss ass’, his very real experiences with mental health and self-harm, and his current Freedom Mic live events where he’s working to showcase artists that don’t have real opportunities to shine!
