Why did you choose to study this field?

Ever since my childhood I have always enjoyed taking electronics apart, and I have been mesmerized with figuring out how they work. This degree is an opportunity for me to turn that passion into a career.

Tell us how you came to choose FVTC for your education.

I chose FVTC because it gave me a solid roadmap to my degree of choice, and FVTC has a solid reputation with a very extensive curriculum.

What's been the most rewarding part of your educational journey at FVTC?

I honestly feel like every part of my experience has been rewarding. Just getting the opportunity to take this college journey has been pretty life-changing.

What was the most difficult part?

Crossing the finish line has probably been the most difficult part of everything so far. Beginning was easy, and I couldn't wait to start, but reaching the end has been the real challenge. The anticipation of what comes next in my life has made me both anxious and excited.

What will you do on graduation day or in the future to celebrate graduation?

I'm going to celebrate, enjoy my spoils, and spend time with the people who have been cheering me on and giving me a helping hand from the beginning. I really couldn't have done it without them.

Tell us about your plans after graduation.

I will be writing up a resume, most certainly with the help of the support services at FVTC. After that, I will start my job-hunting journey. I will be glad to finally put my new skills to work.

One last parting thought or words of wisdom to share with others.

Push your limits; life is too short to take shortcuts.
