Another goal is that I would like to give back or contribute something good to this school, to show my appreciation and to acknowledge how lucky I am to study here.

I am a huge sports fanatic, I can literally talk about any popular sport in the world but my favorites are basketball specifically the NBA and also Soccer. I like to play these sports and also watch a lot of TV shows and Movies. But my most favorite thing to do is to work at the Brookens Library, because at the end of the day Love to work and always develop and build on my professional and organizational skills . Working here also gives me a chance to meet new people and that is something I love to do, as I am a very social person.

What have you learned since working at the library? I have learned to be more organized and also to manage time and be punctual.

What are your post-graduation plans?  I still haven’t figured that out clearly but I would like to get my masters and start working in the field of Compliance or Human Resources for tech companies such as Google or Amazon. Sometimes I think about going to law school and pursuing a career in corporate law.
