University of Massachusetts School of Public Policy (SPP) student Alfonso Hidalgo

Hello, my name is Alfonso and I am from the Dominican Republic. I was raised in Dorchester, Boston and I am one of six children. I believe that learning is universal, through that notion I have developed many interests outside of the classroom. These interests include Boxing, exploring different cultures and learning how to understand others (people), engaging and working with children, and traveling. In addition, a couple fun facts about me are that I was an Tutor-Mentor for Upward Bound, and In 2016 I participated and won the Western New England's Golden Glove Championship (National boxing competition).
