SVA Voices • Hector Moncada:
As a part of our mission in aiding veterans with their transition into higher education and civilian life, SVA shares the stories of student veterans through our SVA Voices series in the hopes that, through storytelling, we can demonstrate the successes of student veterans across the country and inspire the next generation of leaders.
Hector Moncada is a U.S. Army veteran who is currently serving an AmeriCorps VISTA term, working as a Chapter Liaison at Student Veterans of America’s National Headquarters in Washington, DC. Prior to moving to Washington, DC, Moncada earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from the University of the Pacific, where he also served as the Chapter Leader for his SVA Chapter.
“I would recommend that student veterans participate in SVA events and programs, because the networking opportunities available are some of the best in the world. You will meet people who can open doors in areas you can only dream of,” says Moncada.
Hector Moncada is seen here at the United Nations participating in the Novus Summit
that aims to unite the science technology and innovation from around the world.
Moncada first learned about Student Veterans of America through his mentor at the University of the Pacific. He suggests building relationships with people who are influential in your career interest area, so they will be able to connect you with their network of influential people.
We want to hear how your SVA chapter aided you in starting your career, or any other success story you would like to share.
