I was born and raised in Ecuador and moved to the United States in 2013. I am currently attending LaGuardia Community College where I am pursuing my associate degree in Business Administration. I plan to transfer to a four-year institution, where I intend to earn a bachelor’s degree in Finance. My interest in finance stems from my grandfather who was incredibly influential in my life. He instilled in me the value of hard work and being humble. At LaGuardia Community College, I am an active member within finance clubs as well as a volunteer for ALPFA, or the Association of Latino Professionals for America.
Through ANY, I hope to learn and further develop professional skills such as public speaking, interview techniques and soft skills. I decided to join ANY after learning of its mission to help ambitious first-generation students. I am excited to develop both professional and personal through ANY.
