Before I began my journey as an ANY fellow, I was certain that my ultimate career goal was one in forensic science. However, with ANY’s aid, I had a recent self-discovery. I realized that I am a social and artistic individual who enjoys networking. My present standing as a 2nd year forensic science student at John Jay College may be altered due to my new epiphany. As such, I am currently exploring careers in public relations and communications through internships, career fairs, and research.
I am confident that with ANY’s support I will be able to not only learn more about my capabilities and interests but also will be able to determine my dream career. Additionally, I will develop transferable skills. I hope to develop myself both personally and professionally, discovering other dormant abilities I may possess, and fully appreciating my personal journey. In addition, I have a compelling desire to establish substantial academic, personal, and professional networks.
The above-mentioned goals are all dear to me because as a first-generation Guyanese college student who immigrated at fourteen years young, I believe that I have no choice but to be successful. For me, this means achieving my goals and acquiring the crucial skills to achieve and maintain a higher economic status for both my family and myself. With ANY’s counsel, my family’s support, and my resilience coupled with my unceasing drive for success, I believe that I will attain all that I desire.
