What do you value about HAULYP?
I joined HAULYP to meet various minority young professionals that had the desire to change their future AND help others along the way. HAULYP has given me the opportunity to not only meet lifelong friends but to demonstrate my passion to give back to my community and hopefully help change the landscape of Houston with other HAULYP members.
