About Me

As the son of a first generation immigrant, the American dream has always been a big part of my family. Coming from an educated family in the philippines my mother taught me the value of an education and that I should work hard to achieve the goals that I have set before me. She taught me that the American dream was achievable, but only if I was willing to work for it. I believe that the CEO program will give me an advantage in the business world and will help me achieve the goals that I have set for myself in the future. I am a currently a senior at Vincennes Lincoln High School and I am hoping to attend either Indiana University or Ball State University to pursue a business degree. I am excited to learn what makes local businesses in Knox County successful and to understand the challenges they face. I look forward to what this inaugural Knox County CEO class will be able to accomplish.
