Maria

I came from the Dominican Republic to the United States. Moving from the Caribbean to New York has helped me to improve my skills of adapting to new environments.  After I earn my associate’s degree in Business Administration at Queensborough Community College, I will transfer to a four-year institution to earn a bachelor’s degree. Presently, I am an active student and member of the Discovery Club on the Queensborough campus and I am delighted to take part in it.

I am highly motivated to strive in a career as manager in Human Resources. I like to encourage and motivate others, and I am also very motivated to run my own business as an event planner helping people to create great and memorable moments in the near future.

As a dedicated and ambitious student, ANY will help me to improve my leadership skills tremendously. More significantly, I look forward being paired with a Mentor Coach who will help me succeed in my professional goals. I am very privileged to be a 2015 New York Fellow!
