KidsTek was very excited to host Juan Vargas an alumnus of our Business Computing class at North High School! Juan graduated from North three years ago, he now attends University of Colorado Boulder, majoring in Engineering.
Juan shared stories of his personal life growing up here in Colorado, as well as his experience in college, and what his goals are for the future. Our students enjoyed asking questions and hearing from a previous student who sat in the same chairs as them.
When Juan was asked about how it felt to be back in his High School he said:
“The opportunity as a minority student in College, to go back to my High School, and present to Juniors and Seniors, preparing for college and life after High School, was a really great experience. This allowed the students to receive advice from someone who has the same background and experiences as them. This also allowed the opportunity to hear from someone they can relate to. When you can see that you are no different than any other person and that the social limitations put on you are not a factor in determining your success you start to realize that all you have to do is put your mind, time, and effort into working hard and accomplishing all your goals.”
Thank you Juan for speaking at North, you are an inspiration. We wish you all the best!
