Introducing Renee Octave

My name is Renée Octave. I am an EET major. I’m currently enrolled in the four year program. I decided to do this major because I was always interested in it. I am an active member in my church. I sing and preach. I really enjoy worshiping, In my free time I enjoy  reading and writing. And watching murder mysteries. I like the suspense of not knowing. I don’t really talk which is crazy because I preach to many people.  I can’t wait to see how this semester goes.

Introducing Jennifer Leong

Hi, my name is Jennifer Leong and this is my 3rd year at City Tech. I transferred from Brooklyn College being undecided. I finally chose to major in Civil Engineering Technology/ Construction Tech because I enjoy learning the construction trade. My ultimate goal is to apply engineering knowledge as a Project Manager. In other news, I love to try new things, foods, and experiences. I can eat pizza 24/7 and am a tv show/ cinema fanatic. I am currently watching The Good Doctor (amazing).

Introducing Israel Saucedo

Hi, my name is Israel Saucedo, my major is Computer Science, I became interested in this major due to my goal to be a video game developer in the future. My passion lies a lot with gaming, some of my favorite recent games are Persona 5, COD, and also Fallout 76 but only because of how disastrous that game has become. My favorite book would probably be Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan, my favorite animal of course is cats, my favorite recent movie is Joker and honestly anytime I have to do a presentation is overcoming a challenge for me, I absolutely loathe public speaking.

Antonis N. Misoulis

Hello my name is Antonis N. Misoulis. My major is Mechanical Engineering Technology and I have my associates degree from Queensborough Community College and this is my first semester in CityTech going for my bachelor’s. My brother is an Engineer and I think seeing what he does helped me catch an interest in Engineering, I also like finding out how to put things together so that helped aswell. I believe the next math based course I’m taking would eventually be Fluid Mechanics where I would calculate how fluids travel through machines. After I get my degree from CityTech my goal is to get a full time job at the Engineering Company I currently intern for. Some of my hobbies include playing video games, playing baseball, and I’m also a life long Yankees fan. I like to think that I’m good at using the program AutoCAD which is a design program for Engineers and Architects to design items and etc in 2D and 3D forms. My favorite books are probably The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien,  and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.

Introducing Nafew Mustafa

Hi, my name is Nafew Mustafa and I am currently a second semester freshmen majoring in computer science. Although I’m set on computer science for the most part, I do genuinely enjoy most subjects(barring history). Math is actually one of my favorite subjects and I’m excited to take Calculus 2 because I heard it was challenging and goes beyond memorizing simple formulas and just applying them over and over. Also, despite how I’m majoring in computer science, I actually want to be a psychiatrist! I hope to combine both of my majors in interesting ways to help others and have fun doing so.

Jared Cruz

Hey, my name is Jared Cruz and I am currently in my second semester at City Tech. I am undecided about what I want to pursue so I’ve settled on acquiring my AA degree first. Although, I do know that I have a passion for crunching numbers and being able to help others out in doing so. Not only did I pass MAT1475, but I mastered derivatives so hopefully I breeze through MAT1575. Also, I am a fitness enthusiast and if you happen to know Wheels let me know!
