Hello Everyone. My name is David Velasquez. I was born in New York. I live in the bronx. I’m a Student and a Mentor at New York City College of Technology. My Major is Communication Design for 4 Years. I got accepted to this college on February 13, 2018. I started this college on August 27, 2019. I am very grateful to be in the city tech family. My goal in college is to become a professional student based on my skills, my abilities and my techniques in order improving myself as of why I belong here when it comes to learning new things that can be difficult or easy or work assignments that I have to be aware of. The more I continue with this goal and other goals that I have in my mind, the more it can lead me to opportunities, obstacles or challenges down the road whether it’s scholarships, internships, jobs, awards and events based on the progress of how I’m doing in order to achieve myself. Overall, I’m here in college to do whatever it takes to be the successful student that I can be and what the future will hold for me for years to come or after I graduate.
