Meet a #futureshaper: Benjamin Hernandez

    He's making airplane flight smoother

    Benjamin Hernandez has always liked math.

    Growing up, he thought he wanted to be a math teacher or an accountant.

    Instead, he’s a mechanical design engineer and he uses logic to create, modify and repair airplane components by editing drawings and 3D models on a computer.

    Based in Mexicali, Mexico; here is his #futureshaper story.
