At first, I frankly acknowledge that it was a big challenge. As a freshman student, I experienced a “language shock”, since back in high school all of my classes were taught in Spanish, and I could barely speak English. However, I managed to overcome this barrier with hard work and the orientation from many dedicated professors. I consider KU to be a remarkable place because of the staff who instructs and works there. They are ambitious, passionate, and open to new ideas. Equally important, having a chapel on Campus is a blessing for everybody.
I graduated from Business Administration with a minor in Marketing in May 2018, and ever since, I have been able to put in practice, all of the knowledge and abilities I acquired. After graduation, I thought it would be hard for me to get a job, but due to my academic and professional preparation, I was able to find a job within a few months. I am currently working as an Administrative Assistant for an outsourcing company that provides administrative and accounting services to a logistics company in the United States. In this job, I have honed my skills such as teamwork, problem-solving, adaptability, time management, and many others.
To conclude, college at Keiser was an amazing experience, it made me a better person, and I am a proud alumnus. John F. Kennedy once said, “I think the success of any school can be measured by the contribution the alumni make to our national life”. I, therefore, encourage every student and alumni to make a small contribution to society, so that together we can make a better and happier world.
