Bio

I am an aspiring Hospitality professional, looking forward to having a career in the special events/wedding industry, and possibly in lodging and travel. I have always been impacted by the hospitality industry since I was a kid, from my multiple trips to Disney World, to traveling for conventions, or simply going out and having a good time with friends at a restaurant. However, one of the biggest impressions left on me came from my trips to South America in 2012-2013; having the experience of a foreign community opening their hearts and treating me as their own family expanded my views on what “hospitality” meant to me.

Since then, I have traveled to Houston, New Orleans, Miami and Central Florida and experienced so much in those particular areas– there is no doubt that I have developed a fierce passion for travel, to learn about different cultures local and abroad, and how to bring those bits and pieces back home to serve in my own community. I hope that I’ll be able to fulfill my many dreams, and be able to give back to my community and the foreign communities that have served me with love and sincerity.

My Clubs

City Tech Printmaking Club

City Tech Printmaking Club

This club is open to all City Tech students, but was originally conceived for the students of the Advertising Design & Graphic Arts (ADGA) Department. We have formed to help bring traditional printmaking techniques back into the general awareness of our members in order to ground them more fully in the philosophy and heritage of graphic arts design and production. We work to offer informative lectures, presentations, exhibitions, demonstrations, and field trips for our students to explore all forms of printmaking, including but not limited to screenprint, relief, lithography, and intaglio.
