Mr. Aguirre used his AAS in Business Administration to attain the position of Account Manager at iPos, Internet Point of Sale, and fulfill his goal of having a “life better than what I had before studying”. His journey at ASA College wasn’t always easy. He had to balance the responsibilities of schoolwork and a full-time job, yet this pressure focused him. He applied everything he learned, especially the mock interview experience, and it put him in position to take advantage of the opportunities presented to him. Now he would have future students know, “it won’t be easy, but it’s not impossible, so stay hungry.”

I am grateful for the opportunity they gave me.” Currently, Ms. Erkenova is taking advantage of OPT as star Marketing Specialist for Flippo’s Hallandale.

“Having a degree is a way to demonstrate your capabilities and be a living example for all your friends and family. My daughter has been my number one motivation since she was born. I can say that all I am doing right now, it’s because of her, so she can see in her Mom as demonstrating responsibility, integrity, and dedication. I want her to see me as a living example to follow.”
