Raul Asencio - Webmaster
Raul's family came to the United States when he was little, and he didn't know the language or culture. As a kid, he always had the curiosity to find out how things work, and this curiosity lead him to his computer engineering degree. He joined SHPE-UNT while attending UNT. He saw this organization as a family because his friends were involved by helping other member in their school work and by pushing them to become leaders. Raul believes that a small change can make the biggest impact; he wants to give back to the community.
