Speaker

Mailen  Nuñez

Note:  Light food will be served and members from Touro Graduate School of Technology’s admission team will be on hand to answer questions related to admissions.

Every year Touro GST honors their graduates with a dinner to celebrate and commemorate their achievements. In addition, at this year’s graduation ceremony, Mailen Nuñez spoke on behalf of her class about the journey that has led her to graduation and her career. Ms. Nuñez graduated with a Masters in Information Systems and aspires to be a Project Manager.

“Touro’s GST program was very important during a difficult time of my life and helped me realize that everything in this life happens for a reason. The program helped me obtain the necessary experience to continue my career and to expand my skills and knowledge. I now encourage other students to never give up on their dreams. During my last semester in the GST program, I participated as a panelist at a Career Services Career Night and I shared helpful advice and tips to students who are building a career in the technology field.

The GST program made me the person who I am—A strong and determined woman. This program taught me to value and appreciate life despite the obstacles we face. It taught me to respect and love others regardless of their cultural and religious differences. It also helped me become a better mother and person, and enabled me to care for my family and children. Finally, at GST, I learned that nothing is impossible if you strive with perseverance and faith."
