Major and Graduation

Information Technology and Management ~ May 2021

Short-Term Goals

My short terms goals include graduating from Illinois Tech with a Bachelor's Degree in Information Technology and Management, be as involved as I can at Illinois Tech, and continue to grow, develop, and improve my leadership skills, all while maintaining at least a 3.5 GPA or higher. Outside of my life here at Illinois Tech, I plan on continuing to very work closely with Leadership Initiatives- a nonprofit organization committed to bringing the opportunity of democracy and economic prosperity to communities around the world. I’ve always had a great passion for helping others, and I am positive that during my time at Illinois Tech, I will able to continue to serve others and learn many different skill sets that will permit me to find new ways to give back to the community and those around me. In short, my short term goals will allow me to continue to grow as a person and prepare for what awaits me in the future. I am excited for the Leadership Academy and these next four years at Illinois Tech! 

Long-Term Goals

As an immigrant from Mexico, I understand the difference between a First and Third World country. Every time I go to back for a visit to Mexico, I am reminded of why my parents decided to leave behind their family and close friends and move to the States. My parents wanted better opportunities for themselves and their children, a better education, community, and life. I’d like to live in a world where those types of opportunities are there for anyone no matter their location. As I stated earlier, I plan on obtaining Bachelor's Degree in Information Technology and Management, I am confident that obtaining this degree is the first step I will need to take in order to achieve one of my life goals; help improve our society through technology and innovation. As the human race continues to evolve, so does our technology. I want to be prepared for the new machinery that awaits me in the future. This being said, I plan on working with about every piece of technology that I can get my hands on in order to familiarize myself with the tools around me. By learning about how the technology around us works, I can work with it to find a way improve our daily lives, and ultimately make the world a better place.
