The pathway to success in career and life starts with goals, motivation, and commitment. Setting the bar high academically is but one of many routes to success, as is pursuing professional experience through internships and seeking leadership opportunities.

Even before graduating, many young people pursuing STEM careers are clearly on the success path. Juan Pablo Guerra achieved a 3.9 GPA in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering at Florida International University in Miami, FL, and was also a board member of Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society. Michelle Torelli had a 3.87 GPA while working toward a master’s degree in environmental engineering at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA. She also was the founder and president of Latinos on Fast Track. Danny Munoz achieved a 3.74 GPA in his senior year at City College of the City University of New York while working on a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. Leading to graduation, he also interned at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI in the Space Sciences and Engineering Department and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD, as a research intern.

Daniel Bosquez offers the following tips to achieve success:

“Sit in the front. Take excellent notes, review them immediately after class, and you will never have to study again.”

“It is infinitely harder to scheme your way around your work and memorize. It is much easier to learn things by understanding the why and how behind them. That way you’ll know things and not memorize facts you will soon forget.”

“The only person you should be better than is who you were yesterday.”

Lizbeth Sanchez offers the following tips for success:

Don’t be too rushed. “Not everyone works at the same pace. Everything will come in its time.”

“You can always find a better version of yourself.” She suggests working toward self-betterment.
