Si Se Puede Success Story: Guillermo Rodriguez Shows That 'Yes, He Can'
Guillermo Rodriguez is a leader, a counselor, a mentor, and a teacher. He is actively involved in his community, always giving back and always looking for more ways to make a difference in the lives of others.
Guillermo is undoubtedly someone you’d refer to as an upstanding citizen and someone you’d turn to as a role model. His commitment to helping others and his ability to manage a full-time job, school, and volunteer work is truly inspiring.
It’s hard to reconcile this Guillermo with the Guillermo who was once addicted to methamphetamines and battled alcoholism. It’s hard to imagine that this is the same man who spent two years in prison for causing a head on collision while driving under the influence. (Thankfully, both Guillermo and the other driver survived.)
This is, however, Guillermo’s very real and recent past, and it is what led him to enroll in the Encompass program Si Se Puede - a program that has helped shape the person he is today.
