Jazmin Lopez Gonzalez is a senior at Charles Page High School. With the end of her senior year approaching, she already knows what she wants to do once she is finished. And she says that she owes a lot of her preparedness to Tulsa Tech.
“I attend the Business Entrepreneurship course at Tulsa Tech,” she stated. “I chose this course because I wanted to learn more about the business world. It’s important to sustain ethical business to help our economies for our families. I want to encourage ways that develop the business into being more environmentally ethical. Tulsa Tech has prepared me for the future because it has created an opportunity to seek future careers. It has also helped me learn new skills I will use for a lifetime. My plan after high school is to go to a four-year university to pursue a management degree that branches out to business sustainability. I have always felt passionate about running a business and how it affects our beautiful earth.”
When she first heard about Tulsa Tech, Jazmin says none of the programs caught her eye. But after a closer look, she says she found the perfect one for her and says there is a program out there for everyone.
“I first heard about Tulsa Tech from my counselor, but I didn’t find any programs interesting,” she said. “This was until a magazine came inside my mail, and I saw the Entrepreneurship program. To someone who is considering Tulsa Tech, I would absolutely recommend it to them. Of course, it depends on their goals but other than that, it has brought me big learning experiences. In my program, I was taught about investing, credit scores, and the ethics of a business.”
Along with attending Tulsa Tech, Jazmin runs cross country and track and field for the Sandites. She is also involved in the National Honor Society, Distributive Clubs of America, and Baila Tulsa which is a dance club where she can compete in dances of bachata or salsa.
