Jorge was 24 years old and had more than five years of experience working with the NGO, Teen Challenge Association Huehuetenango (ASDEJUVEH) when he was selected as a GOJoven Fellow in 2011. His long term goal is to continue his studies to obtain a doctorate degree. In addition to being a sales advisor, Jorge has worked as a radio broadcaster for the local station “Súper FM” in Huehuetenango, where he hosted programs that focus on social issues impacting youth and improve their knowledge in sexual and reproductive health. Jorge hopes to one day participate as a local representative for Huehuetenango, and through this work, support policies that improve SSR for youth and adolescents. Furthermore, his dream is to successfully represent Guatemala politically in global affairs.
