Lisandro

I’ve lived in Williamsburg my whole life and watched the neighborhood change in the past two decades. As the son of a single parent household, mother taught me what matters most: honesty, diligence, and education. These values shaped me into who I am today as a student at Baruch College, a leader in the Urban Male Leadership Academy (UMLA), and an affiliate of ALPFA, with a major in Finance and a minor in Communication.

At Baruch I’m a part of the UMLA, where men of color are taught leadership qualities through diverse workshops and networking events. I’m also part of ALPFA, a finance club that aids the search for corporate opportunities by introducing members to experienced professionals in the field. Off campus, I’m a waiter where I’ve honed my ability to communicate efficiently, which I hope to use in my future field of finance. I aspire to one day support all those in need in my community.

Through ANY, I hope to develop professionally, build a diverse network, become a better leader, and be ready to face the challenges of the professional world. My future goals are to become a valued asset in my field and give back to my community and all institutions that have helped me grow.
