Henry Poma Vasquez
I am 25 years old and I am from Peru. I moved to the United States two years ago with many objectives and dreams. My parents always taught me that sacrifice is the key to any future successful outcomes. I lived in Peru until I was 19 years old. I won a scholarship from the French Department of Education to obtain a bachelor’s degree in biology in Europe, so I left home and traveled to a whole new country where I stayed until 2015. Living alone made me a more responsible and organized person, which are qualities that are helping me nowadays.
I decided to come to the United States to take advantage of all the educational opportunities this country has to offer. Westchester Community College is opening many doors for me and is helping me discover new professional interests I didn’t know I had, such as Nursing. Anyway, I have no doubt that my experience at Westchester Community College will be something I’ll remember forever because of the great support, quality, and moral values of the faculty and staff.
