Hello everyone and welcome to my ePortfolio.

My name is Jose Sotelo and during the next six to eight minutes you will have the chance to know a little bit about me. You will learn something about my hobbies, interests, aspirations, and short and long term academic goals. Besides that, you will get to know my educational background and my personal and professional goals. I will even include my resume together with contact information, just in case any prospective employer pay a visit to my ePortfolio and finds herself or himself interested in my personal description.


Currently, I live in Queens County, New York City, not far from LaGuardia Community College. I have been living here, in New York, for about six years. I came from Spain, my second country, because originally, I was born Peruvian. Moving to New York City was not an easy decision to make because I knew I was going to be leaving family and friends back in Madrid. At that time, I realized that I was a challenge seeker and Madrid stopped offering me a challenging environment. Some of my relatives who also lived in NYC, offered me the opportunity to continue my education here. So, one day, around six years ago, I packed my two semi-old bags and decided to come to this amazing metropolis. I have to admit that the first years in the city were not really comfortable. But
in time, I managed to adjust very well to this exigent and attractive place.

knowing different kinds of people and their cultures, is one of my favorite and main interests. there is a lot to learn from them; their customs, values, and beliefs. New York City is the right place for me at this moment. I cannot be in a better place than this one. Madrid and New York City are two very different cities, each one with its uniqueness, but they both share something in common, it is the special people who inhabit them.

"Don't walk behind me, I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow. Walk beside me that we may be as one."

Without further ado, Welcome to my ePortfolio!
Thank you.
