Academically strong, Antony has tailored his soft skills to match his qualifications.

FIRST SCOUT QUARTERMASTER: TO USE ANALYTICAL METHODS TO KEEP TRACK OF TROOP EQUIPMENT
Weekends in the Perez household are all about ‘being prepared’ as each of the five family members participate in scout activities. When Antony is able to sneak a spare moment he is either on the water kayaking or locked away in his garage fixing up his beloved old Rangie.
