  • Meet US Marine Corps Veteran Richard Arroyo, MSW ‘16

    Dec 20, 2016
    Tell us about yourself: I grew up in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn in public housing, and attended public schools. I served in US Marine Corps from 1988 – 1992. I am Puerto Rican, which has shaped my experience. Reflecting on my past, I feel blessed to have been at NYU and am excited about my career. I work as a Community Coordinator at the NYC Department of Homeless Services (DHS). I am so happy to be the father of an amazing daughter. She is my greatest motivation in life, and I love her more each and every day.
