Raised in the Bronx, I knew early on that I wanted to set a great example of hard work and success for not only my family but also the young and aspiring Latino community. I am currently a student at Kingsborough Community College pursuing a degree in Education. I also teach music and Spanish as a Teacher’s Assistant at a group family home daycare. With my academic knowledge and hands-on experience, I am determined to achieve my goals in making an important impact and difference in the world. I intend on improving the educational system by introducing creative and innovative ideas and methods applicable to future adolescents.
As a Fellow, America Needs You will provide access to an abundance of opportunities and a strong support system that I personally feel is necessary to succeed. Having a Mentor Coach to guide me in my experience every step of the way gives me the confidence and moral I need to make it through each semester. I am very honored and privileged to be a 2016 New York Fellow!
