I was born in the Dominican Republic, but have been living in New Jersey since 2014. My journey to America has had many twists, but through it all, I have become a strong and confident person. Since I was young, my life has been full of constant challenges, but I’ve learned to accept those challenges. Those challenges make us the best version of ourselves.
I’m currently studying Marketing at New Jersey City University. At New Jersey City University, I have taken leadership positions, such as Secretary of Federacion de Latino Americanos (FELA) and Student Assistant for TRIO Learning Community Program. I also have experience in business working as an administrative assistant at a dental office and as a receptionist at Aguadilla motors in Puerto Rico. These experiences have supplemented my learning at school and will hopefully help me achieve my goals.
Being a part of America Needs You is a blessing. The support I have found in ANY has helped my confidence. I am very grateful for this opportunity and the opportunities it has created for my career. ANY’s mentorship is crucial in helping me transform both my vision and mission into workable strategies. Additionally, ANY is important in reaching my academic and professional goals as part of a much bigger picture — my personal growth. I feel honored to be a part of the 2016 Cohort.
