Featured Student for April 2017
“Originally from the Dominican Republic, I moved here in the early 2000’s. In the beginning years, it was difficult for me to communicate with my classmates so, throughout my high school career I was very involved in the fine arts, sports, and student government to refine my English and engage more with my classmates. These activities led me to the University of Missouri-Kansas City where I graduated with a Bachelors in Political Science. While at UMKC, I was involved in many organizations, one being Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity. Here I would develop my leadership, organizational, and communication skills. After graduating I was offered a position at T-Mobile as a Retail Associate Manager where I furthered my leadership skills and perfected my customer service skills. During my stay at T-Mobile my passion for technology flourished and I decided to attend Centriq to pursue a career in Information Technology.“
Q: Why did you decide to come to Centriq?
A: I decided to attend the Systems & Security program at Centriq Training because I am ready to start a career in a field that I am passionate about, is always growing, and has limitless opportunities. I have a passion for technology and a desire to help people maximize and enjoy their experience with technology. I also wanted my learning to be focused on the subject matter with helpful real-world experience. Centriq provides all of that to all of their students.
Q: What class has been your favorite so far?
A: My favorite subject matter while attending Centriq has been PowerShell. I really enjoy the versatility and control it gives users. I am very excited to learn more about scripting and how I can improve in my use of it.
Q: What do you hope to do after Centriq?
A: Upon completion of my program with Centriq, I would like to start my career in IT and learn as much as possible. My ultimate goal is to have my own business. I would like to make a small business social media management company.
Q: What other interests do you have?
A: I love everything about cars! I have been very interested in what Tesla is doing with automation and have been following their company’s achievements. I also love to travel, with Seattle being my favorite spot to visit. There is so much you can do in the city and also outside of the city with hiking, fishing, biking, and crabbing. I really enjoy spending time outdoors and following the Kansas City Royals. Listening to music is another past time that I appreciate when I am not adventuring outdoors, traveling, or following car trends.
