The Ailes Apprentice Program has been celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with its annual series, featuring inspiring stories from the Hispanic/Latino community. The series came to a close today with the story of Francisco Nunez.

Nunez, who was raised by a single parent in Washington Heights in New York City, was introduced to music at an early age by his mother.

It opened up a whole new world for him – one that he’s been sharing with the children of New York ever since!

He sat down with Alica Acuna to explain how he's trying to inspire children, combat poverty and promote diversity, using music to bring children together. 

Watch the profile above.
