I have always considered the opportunity to attend Brooklyn Tech and graduate as one of my most significant life events. When I compare my high school years with the experiences of others I meet in life, I am aware that attending Tech is a truly unique experience. I think the intensity of the four years at Tech helped to prepare me for many activities I participated in after graduation. In particular I think of traveling to Uganda on two occasions to do mission work, helping to build homes and schools there. While working with local laborers on the structures I thought of some of the technical skills I learned at Tech and the value of teamwork to get something accomplished.
Tech holds many memories for me and I will always value what I learned in my four years.
