Abel was born in Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico and raised in the El Paso, Texas – Juárez region. His dual-citizenship status granted him the ability to live and travel between both countries. Abel grew up speaking English and Spanish, and equally embracing both cultures. Mr. Holguin attended the University of Texas at Austin, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Advertising and a Minor in Business Foundations. During his studies at UT, he studied abroad in Barcelona, Spain, where he fell in love with the wide variety of cultures and languages of Europe. This influenced him to learn Portuguese and Italian, to better communicate with his friends and have more immersive travel experiences. Abel joined Freestyle as a Marketing Intern in January 2020, and has since then, ascended to an Associate role. His love for cultures and languages enable him to feel right at home with Freestyle.
In his free time, Abel enjoys working out, reading non-fiction books (economics & history), and improving his Portuguese and Italian language skills. Abel aspires to return to Mexico and help the country achieve its socioeconomic potential.
