Although I’ve always been interested in computer programing, math and international relations, my true passion is languages. As the European Emperor Charles the Great once said, “To know two languages is to possess a second soul.” I thoroughly believe in this phrase as I speak Spanish, English, Italian, and am currently studying the Korean language Hangul. I love to learn about the culture and history of different countries. I also enjoy taking on new experiences and adjust to any environment with ease.

My strong desire to achieve the American Dream is what encouraged me to enroll in school and motivates me every day throughout my life’s journey.  Currently, I am a sophomore at Hostos Community College majoring in Business Management. I plan to transfer to Baruch College and earn a Bachelor’s degree in International Business. Throughout my college journey, I’ve had the privilege of becoming a Student Ambassador and a Hostos Students Government Senator.

I am elated to be a part of the New York Fellows Program.  I am confident that the program will prepare me to reach my goals and give back to my community in every way possible.
