“I chose engineering because I was always interested in the way things worked and the thought process and design of things that we take for granted.”

Graduated from: Providence Career & Technical Academy. Campus involvement at PC: Middle Eastern Student Association. The best thing about college: “Since this is a small campus, it is really easy to interact with people and with your professor. Classes are no bigger than 30 students.” A recent accomplishment: “I am able to do research and help on a project that will provide light to people in developing countries that don’t have access to electricity. A recent challenge: “In general, trying to fully understand my courses, which rely heavily on problem-solving skills and a good understanding of different math techniques.” Resources you seek out for support and encouragement: “We have a tutoring center that is very helpful, and all the professors have office hours and are more than glad to meet with students if they have any questions or are stuck on something. As this is a Catholic institution, there is a church on campus and the fathers love meeting and talking with students.” How did The College Crusade help you prepare to succeed in college? “By teaching me time management as well as how to set minor and major goals to get on the right track.” Advice for Crusaders entering college: “Stay focused on your work. It seems like a lot to do, but if you stay on top and manage your time properly you will find that it can be really easy. It’s only hard if you make it so. And do not be scared to ask for help because college can go sorta fast, and if you fall behind you’ll find it harder to catch up.” Dream job: “To work as a mechanical engineer, possibly for a major company like GE or even for the city.” Where you want to be five years from now: “Working at a well-paying career and being able to provide for myself and my family.” Being successful means: “I can financially support my family and myself and help my parents just as they did for me.” If you could travel in time, would you go to the past or the future? “To the future because I would love to see all the advancements in technology we have achieved.” If you could have a superpower, what would it be? “Teleportation because I’d love to be able to go anywhere in the world.” What you value most in life: “The people I’ve been able to meet as well as the opportunity to do things that I love and enjoy.” Favorite quote: “Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm,” Sir Winston Churchill.
