How I Got Here: Heriberto

  • Texas GEAR UP

What if you could go from playing with Legos to building actual robots? The awesome thing is that you totally can. Heriberto did. He’s a former TXGU student from Brownsville who now owns his very own robotics company—where the line between working and playing is seriously blurry. (Which is the ultimate dream, right?)

Watch Heriberto’s story to see how he turned his favorite hobby into a highly legit career. Spoiler alert: Taking a bunch of AP classes in high school may have given him a major leg up. Oh, and there may or may not be some sweet, sweet robot dancing involved…
