Q: What do you value about HAULYP
I started being active in the DC area Urban League Young Professionals group (Thursday Network) before moving to Houston. I enjoyed the cultural and political discussions they provided and wanted to continue with a similar group in Houston. Being a new resident here, it also helped me become active in the city and network with others.
