"My advice to future Lehigh students is to step out of your comfort zone!" It's the classes that have nothing to do with your major and the people from different backgrounds that are most exciting and rewarding."
What was your favorite Lehigh "moment"?
When I was an orientation leader in the Fall of 2011. As a whole, the experience, from training to meeting my group, was life changing. The culmination of that process manifested in my last meeting with the grou. We were playing a game that the orientation leaders created called Patronus and while playing, I noticed something different in my group. Through the course of just a few days, the first-year students acclimated to their new life and with that, came a new air of confidence. To know that I played a part in that was rewarding.
What was your favorite course?
My freshman seminar was U.S. Latino Film & Literature taught by Professor Antonio Prieto. As a class I never expected to like, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that learning about identity and the emotional transition of immigratnts was interesting and relevant. I was not only provided with a social consciousness but also with a better understanding of my family and culture. Professor Prieto presented the material respectfully and compassionately and cared about the success of his students beyond the scope of the classroom.
What are your career aspirations?
I am most interested in procurement. Ideally, I would like to be in the Interior Design Industry.
