(HARLINGEN) – Pablo Perez is a Digital Media Design student at Texas State Technical College. The Brownsville native anticipates earning his associate degree in Fall 2019.
What are your plans after graduation?
After I graduate I plan on transferring to Texas State University or the University of Texas at San Antonio to pursue a double major in graphic design and music.
What is your dream job?
My dream job is to become a freelance graphic design artist for advertising companies and to become a private music teacher on the side. My love for the arts stems back to middle school when I discovered my talent. I haven’t looked back since.
What has been your greatest accomplishment while at TSTC?
My greatest accomplishment so far was completing my first semester, because it has encouraged me to move forward with my education by showing me that I can complete and surpass my goals here at TSTC.
What greatest lesson have you learned about yourself or life?
I’ve learned a couple lessons. First, I have learned that by doing what makes me happy I will be led to many new things in life. Second, I have volunteered with soup kitchens and food pantries and it has opened my eyes to those less fortunate and how we have to show and spread love.
Who has influenced your success the most?
My parents are the two people who continuously influence me to be successful. They are my support and have always encouraged me to go for what I want in life. Finishing college and getting a good career will be my way of thanking them for all they have done for me.
What is your advice for future TSTC students?
Find something that gives you the motivation to keep moving forward, and do not listen to the people who try to bring you down.
