La clave del éxito/The key to success – Hispanic Heritage Month

¿Porqué Latinos y Puertorriqueños deberían considerar estudiar los campos STEM y convertirse en empresarios? Why should Latinos and Puerto Ricans consider studying STEM fields and becoming entrepreneurs?

Empresarismo es la receta del éxito. Yo llevo 20 años enseñando estoy muy orgullosa de todo lo que he logrado con jóvenes graduandos y jóvenes a nivel sub graduado. Pero la dinámica del empresarismo te ayuda a tener control sobre tu future y el éxito depende de ti así que háganlo. No lo piensen dos veces y la el apoyo lo van a tener no tan sólo de parte mía sino de agencias importantes como a la Fundación Nacional de la Ciencia conocido como en NSF. Ya yo he pasado por el proceso y les dejo el camino trazado para que lo sigan.

Entrepreneurship is the recipe for success. I have been teaching for 20 years and I’m very proud of everything I have achieved with graduate students and undergraduate students. But the dynamic of entrepreneurship is that it helps you take control of your future and that success depends on what you do. So, do it. Don’t think twice and the you will have the support not only from me but from important agencies like The National Science Foundation known as “NSF”. I went through the process and I leave the way paved for those who will follow.
