Continue reading below to get to know a little more about him.
Where are you from? My Hometown is Chicago, primarily raised in the Humboldt Park area.
What do you like to do in your spare time outside of school and work?
A few of the things I like to do in my spare time are play sports, spend time with friends and family, visit my high school (Chicago Bulls College Prep.) and lead the cross fit also known as fit bulls class for a few class periods.
What is a fun fact or story about you?
A fun fact about myself is that I’ve played the violin for Chicago Bulls College Prep throughout my four years of high school.
What are you studying in school?
I am currently a part of Arrupe College of Loyola University of Chicago. This is a program designed to help build college success. The students of Arrupe College study their first 2 years there which will get you an associate’s degree. If any student wishes to further their education they can do so by transferring to any four year institute in Illinois, so that all of their credits can be transferred over; therefore, at Arrupe College I am only studying my general education courses. After Arrupe College I plan to transfer over to Loyola University of Chicago and major in criminal justice with the hopes of becoming a police officer.
What are a couple of your future goals?
One of my future goals is to become a police officer and to slowly work my way up the chain of command. I also want to own a house by the age of 24. I want to graduate with a bachelor’s degree because I will then be the second one in my entire family to have graduated from college with a degree.
What made you apply for this student worker position?
I was offered this job position by Gina Lopez due to how well my admission interview went for Arrupe College. I then contacted Gina back and accepted the position. Thus far, this has been a great experience and I am sure that I will continue to build my knowledge throughout IPS.
What are you looking forward to learning and accomplishing while working at IPS?
I am looking forward to accomplishing the task at hand on a daily basis and being able to work with this industry. I have only done this type of work one time prior to this one and I am enjoying every minute of it. This work is beneficial for skills and functions that I will need to know about later in life and I am really grateful for having the opportunity to work with IPS.
