Jose

San Jose State University

I am and have always been a very social person that is in search of making a difference in others lives. While I have personal hobbies such as playing guitar, hiking, and playing pool, none compare to coaching basketball and being a Biology student. Although I truly enjoy all my personal hobbies, coaching basketball and biology give me the biggest chance of helping those in need as well as those seeking and willing to learn. While I have had stumbles along the way, I continue to perceive my ultimate dream of either becoming a surgeon, or a medical doctor for a sports team. It is nice to do something that interest me, but it is even more satisfying to put a smile on someone, knowing that their day, week, month, or even life has been made a bit better.

Luiza A.

San Jose State University

I'm really outgoing and social person, what I think that can help me to work in a group. I like to work with young people, because I think they always want to learn new things.
I like to be around people, I do not like to be by myself. I like to write, because I think that this is the best way to express my ideas.
I think about my future with a job around people, I am sure that I do not want to work in a office alone. I want a job that I love and that gives me time to spend with things that I like to do, such as be with my family and friends during weekends.
