Throughout my experience of being a first-generation college student, I discovered my passion for education, community, and arts. After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in management and marketing at DePaul University, I intend to enroll at University of Southern California Marshall School of Business. Currently, I am a brother of Delta Sigma Pi and the Vice President of the DePaul Music Business Organization.

I am determined to pursue a career in the music industry. Music has always held a special place in my heart and although I am not a musician, I feel inclined to find work in the music business. I was able to find this as my dream job due to the knowledge and advice teachers and professors have provided me. After acknowledging the enormous impact teachers have had on my growth academically and professionally, I realized two dreams I have are to become a teacher aide or professor at a university and to own a music venue.

As an optimistic and gregarious individual, ANY will provide me with guidance to leave a lasting impact on both the community I grew up in and the plethora of communities all around Chicago. Even more so, my Mentor Coach will provide assistance with much care to help me meet and surpass my ambitious personal and professional goals. I am honored to be an America Needs You Fellow!
