Why Construction?

I was born on the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia, and while I love my country there simply just isn’t enough educational opportunity, especially for STEM. I hope to one day return (not to live because I love living in the US) to improve primary schools that are in dire need of fixing. It would be a dream to build the first STEM school there as well.

Career Goal

I hope to attain my Ph.D. but want to establish myself in the Construction Management industry after I earn my master’s. It is my goal to become president of a Construction Management firm during that time.
