Ricardo “Rick” Colunga was born in El Paso and has lived his entire life here. He graduated from El Paso High School and started working for Las Americas in September 2017, where he uses his skills to keep the building clean, organized, and fixed up. With his mechanical skills, Rick can fix anything.
He loves the work Las Americas does and says his favorite part of his job is meeting people from all around the country and world. “I get to learn from people every day,” he says. In his free time, Rick enjoys mechanical work, fixing cars, and visiting Juarez with his wife Rocio, who he’s been married to for 11 years.
