What are your plans after graduation?

After graduation I plan on pursuing an online bachelor’s degree in business with a specialization in human resources. I hope to eventually work in this field.

What’s your dream job?

What got me most interested in business was taking related courses in high school. Upon entering TSTC, my interest only grew. The goal is to one day work as a Human Resources Manager.

What has been your greatest accomplishment while at TSTC?

I credit TSTC for much of my success in life and consider balancing good grades and activities a great accomplishment. I am very proud to be a member of the honor society. Likewise, I also made the President’s List in spring 2016 and 2018. TSTC definitely facilitated my growth as a student.

What great lesson have you learned about yourself or life?

My takeaway from my time as a TSTC student is time management and organization of my priorities. This is something I struggled with at first, but eventually mastered.

Name a TSTC person who most influenced your success.

The entire faculty is wonderful, but the person that comes to mind is my Business Management

Technology Professor Dr. Edna Claus. She has been instrumental in my success here. TSTC as a whole is so helpful and provides the resources that students need to succeed.

What is your advice for future TSTC students?

My advice for future TSTC students is to stay focused and not to lose sight of your goals.
