Bio

I am transfer student from BMCC. I graduated in the summer of 2013with my Associates Degree in Business Administration. I picked Business Administration because of my extensive background in the retail industry. I figured it would help me one day be able to own my own business. I have always been fascinated with cooking and baking for my loved ones. In general, I have always been very crafty and creative. I started working at the age of 14 and liked the idea of being “independent”. I’ve always known that I should be my own boss. I’ve worked for amazing managers and not so great ones alike. This has taught me how to be with my own employees. I’ve worked in all facets of every industry; from being a bank teller to working in a hospital, to delivering packages for a messenger company. I feel the most joy and excitement when I am able to put a smile on someone’s face when I’ve made their day; whether its just by asking how they are or making their favorite drink. That’s why I love my job now at Starbucks. My ideal job(s) is to own my own bakery/restaurant and further down the line my own hotel in the Caribbean. I know coming to City Tech is one of the best decisions I could ever make because without education, you end up helping someone else build their dream and future. And nothing beats being able to call yourself the boss!
