Our January student of the month is Tamika, an 11th grader at Houston Can Academy Southwest. She has big dreams of becoming an entrepreneur after high school and to study at Sam Houston State University- read on to hear more about how her experience with the Roadmap to Success is helping her get there!
What do you plan to do after high school?
After high school, getting a better understanding of business and marketing is my ultimate goal. I would like to learn as much as I can to pass down what I know freely to young individuals like me who are trying to accomplish being independent for themselves and create something much more than just a dream and a hope but a legacy that works and can be carried on to others.
What kind of job would you like to have in the future?
Being an entrepreneur is what I plan to be in the future. Working for myself and on my own time has always been one of my goals. Working for yourself you have way more time to enjoy the things you love to do and spend time with your family and children.
What is your favorite Roadmap to Success lesson and why?
Practicing professionalism. This lesson breaks down how important it is to be professional no matter what crowd of people you are around. Surround yourself with positive people because their good habits will rub off on you. Having a good personality could also open a lot of doors for you with any career you’re trying to get into. It teaches you the ways of networking, using your vocabulary in the correct way, showing your intelligence and ability to be a fast learner.
What is the most important thing you learned from Roadmap to Success?
Apply hard work and dedication to accomplish what you want. Make a game plan first so you won’t be lost but you have a solid plan to take the steps that you need to take.
