Growing up as a young student in Jamaica, Queens, one of my biggest dreams was to attend college. As I approached my high school graduation, I realized that my dream was going to become a reality. Here I am today as a first-generation college student at Baruch College pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Advertising with a minor in Graphics. In order to achieve my goals, I am reminded of my parents’ dedication and hard work that give me the motivation needed to continue my higher education.
Through that motivation, I discovered my passion for creativity and know that the career I strive for must be innovative. It must be a career where I would be able to innovate and see the product in use. Graphic design has always been a subject that fascinated me because of its ability to make people think outside of the box.
In the future I hope to open my own stationery line and see how my creations can be used in various industries. America Needs You has become a steppingstone in my college career and I can’t wait to see what the program brings to my future.
