In accounting for his success, he largely credits the values instilled in him by his parents. From a young age, his father taught him that the reality of life is that he is going to have to spend much of his time working – therefore, he must find something he is passionate about. Looking toward the future, Mr. Del Real’s biggest goal is to obtain his license as a professional engineer. With so many uncertainties in life, the reassurance and integrity that comes with an official license has always been a source of comfort.
