I was born in New York City to Mexican parents. My parents came here to give their kids the opportunity they never had in their native country. I am currently a sophomore student at Lehman College studying Mathematics and Accounting as well as a member of the men’s varsity soccer team. My career interests involve working in the actuarial science field.
My academic interest is mathematics. There is no better way to go about life than by thinking critically and using logic. Throughout high school, I was a math tutor and taught students how to apply it to real life circumstances. By the time I entered college I found my passion in mathematics. The skills I gained can be used in actuarial science and that is why I am interested in this particular sector. Nevertheless, I still have much to learn in my remaining time in college.
I joined the New York Fellows Program because I believe it can teach me everything I need to know about the professional world. I know ANY will definitely give me the skills I need to be fully prepared to find an internship in the sectors I am interested in. Through time and a lot of work, ANY will essentially help me accomplish my life long goal of becoming an actuary. The New York Fellows Program gives me the opportunity to utilize my critical thinking skills and solve real-life problems similar to the ones I have seen in textbooks.
