Hi everyone, my name is James Chavis & I’m pursuing a degree in applied mathematics. I am looking to focus more on the financial science side of applied math as I have several business endeavors I am going to pursue. I studied civil engineering at a prior institution before I got to City Tech. I switched to Applied Math because it was a better path to graduation for me and I love numbers. I currently work in real estate as a property manager. The pandemic has been great from an introspective standpoint as I’ve been able to take more time to learn myself & who I want to be in the next 5 years. Also the pandemic has been good for shifting the focus to race relations as times of discomfort often precede change which this country desperately needs. I’m interested in sports, music, fashion & my newfound quarantine interest, woodturning. (I recommend watching a wood turning video on Youtube I find them highly interesting as well as therapeutic in a way)
