Tagliatela College of Engineering
When I finished my eight-year hitch in the Army, I decided to find a school close to home in New England. I was interested in IT and computer science even before the Army, so it was a natural for me to enroll here. Meanwhile, UNH introduced a program in cyber forensics and computer security, and that was a perfect fit for me.
My family is from Guatemala, and I’m the first of us to go to college. My mom is very proud of me. She and I both believe that the best way to get ahead in this world is to be innovative.
And that’s the same philosophy that I’ve found at UNH. Being part of this community has given me the opportunity to find and demonstrate my full potential, and figure out how I can contribute.
