Henry is a first-generation college student and immigrant from Bani, Dominican Republic, who moved to Boston during his childhood. Growing up in the Alice Taylor apartments, he attended Boston Public Schools and developed a love for baseball at Marcella Park. As an individual who personally experienced the challenges of navigating civic institutions, Henry recognized the inequities and barriers faced by those seeking resources and support.

Motivated by his own experiences, Henry worked as a field director on City Councilor Kenzie Bok's campaign and later served as Councilor Bok's Director of Operations and Mission Hill and Fenway Liaison. Additionally, he played a crucial role as the inaugural director for Mayor Michelle Wu's Office of Civic Organizing. Advocating for residents in various neighborhoods, including Mission Hill, East Boston, Dorchester, and Hyde Park, Henry strongly believes in the inclusion of every Bostonian in our vibrant democracy.

With a deep connection to the city and representing the next generation of Bostonians, Henry is running for a position on the Boston City Council. Through his campaign, he aims to bring a fresh perspective and uplift residents in each neighborhood. Henry's ultimate goal is to create a more accessible and fair system that reflects the needs and aspirations of all Bostonians.
