A freshman when he first got involved at PEC, Carlos will soon graduate from George Washington Carver High School of Engineering and Science. Before heading off to college, we asked him to come share about his future plans and how his time at CDIT impacted them.
He reflected on the importance of having a computer at home and gaining access to the Internet, which was essential for him to develop many of his interests. "The Internet is important for everything we do," he said. Carlos used the Internet to learn about things as diverse as dieting and healthy eating to how to play guitar. He used Youtube videos and a website called Ultimate-Guitar.com to learn how to play his favorite songs. Now he plays and is the lead singer in a rock band, writing some songs of his own. Carlos is also a hardcore gamer, usually on his Playstation but occasionally on the computer he received for completing the Comcast Digital Connectors program.
In the fall Carlos will attend West Chester University, studying music education and earning a teaching certification. To continue to explore his tech interests, he is considering a minor in computer science as well. CDIT is excited to send another alum to college with computer literacy that enhances and deepens students' passions!
