Hi, my name's Hector.
When I think about my childhood, I am sometimes surprised that I made it this far. Growing up in Charlestown was not very easy. Surrounded by gang violence, drugs, and decades-old racial animosity, it was not extremely difficult to fall through the cracks, to become another forgotten soul, sentenced to a life of constant struggle for survival. There is a very good chance that without the Boys & Girls Club, I would not be here.
