“I grew up in Mexico and was one of the first in my family to go to college. During High School, when I was getting ready to drop out, my computer instructor saw my interest in technology and recommended that I take some classes at Bellevue College where he also taught.
“Ever since my first business class with Leslie Lum I dreamed of becoming the CEO of my own company. The support and motivation that I received from both Leslie and Judith Paquette really helped me out in achieving my goals. They saw my true potential, even when I still had no idea what I wanted to do.
“At BC I discovered two of my passions; technology and business. I learned to combine these two passions and start an IT consulting business. As my business continues to grow, I continue to implement the skills that I learned at BC. I will continue to grow as a person and will always remember how much BC has helped me get to where I am today.”
