Jeff's Story

My passion is engineering.

I discovered my passion for engineering when I figured that math was not my number one passion. I wanted to become either a math teacher or an engineer. It didn't just come to me, I waited a long time to figure out that engineering was the thing for me. It was all because of this program I joined over the summer this year which is The DTP (DEVELOPING TOMORROWS PROFESSIONALS) program that I finally realized engineering was what I wanted to do. When I made this decision I had no doubts that I would change my mind about becoming an engineer.

A Note from Mr. Abdus-Salaam, Jeff's Counselor

Jeff is an excellent candidate for this program because he is dedicated, persistent, and focused on his goals. This will be an amazing opportunity for him to explore the world of engineering and manufacturing to determine if this field is right for him. Also, he will experience what it's like to be around highly motivated students willing to take risks in the name of a highly successful future.

A Poem of Thanks

"No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks" I would like to thank everyone of you out there who showed love and support. Someone great once told me" If ur not giving, what are you doing? " well I've been given, the least I can do is return a thanks.

Yours truly:Jeff
