My name is Tatjana Sevilla. I was born and raised in the Bronx, NY. Although my mother was born in Massachusetts, her family is from Puerto Rico. My father was born and raised in Ecuador. He moved to the United States when he was 12 years old.
Currently, I am attending my last semester at LaGuardia Community College. I am majoring in Business Administration. I definitely know, in my career I want to be active in the business field. But I also love fashion. After I graduate from LaGuardia, I am in hopes of combining the two into my career. I really want to go to City College and major in Advertising/Public Relations with a minor in Spanish or Marketing. Some classes that I have taken at LaGuardia has influenced my decision strongly.
At the beginning of the year, I made a list of goals to accomplish and looking through my ePortfolio, you will see what those goals are. I look forward on accomplishing some within the year and others; I plan on accomplishing them within time. Some goals are, learning how to drive, paint and backpack throughout Europe one day. But most importantly, I want to graduate from LaGuardia by the end of the year and transfer to a 4 year college. There are many things I want to accomplish. I just need to prepare myself, set a due date, and prioritize things in my life.
Outside from school, I try to keep productive. A recent hobby I have picked up is photography. I am learning how to shoot with a film camera and a digital camera. Also in my spare time, I try to read as much as possible. Sometimes people are so overwhelmed with what's going on around them they need an escape. For me, reading is a way to escape and let my imagination run a bit. Other activities I plan on attempting is painting, crochet and learning to play an instrument.
