I Define Success: Brayan Castillo

brayan-castillo.jpgWhy did you choose Ivy Tech Northeast? I chose Ivy Tech not only for its affordable tuition, but also because it’s close to home. The Business Administration program at Ivy Tech can transfer to most universities in Indiana. Many of my business courses are preparing me for the business world through class projects and connections on campus and within the community.

What are your plans after graduation? After I complete an associate degree, I plan on transferring to IUPUI and applying to its Kelley School of Business. I plan on double-majoring in marketing and international business and minoring in Spanish.

What is your No. 1 career goal? I want to be an entrepreneur. My ultimate goal is to own a business and expand it to global markets. I also want to be an educator and mentor aspiring entrepreneurs.

Who has been your biggest cheerleader? Honestly, I don’t have just one cheerleader. My cheerleaders are my family and friends. Some of my biggest motivators are my peers from GOAL y Amigos (Graduating Outstanding Achieving Latinos and Friends), a student organization on campus. GOAL y Amigos has motivated me to become a better student, and I can always come to the members for help in anything.

What does “success” mean to you? Success, to me, means enjoying what you do in your career and doing it well. Like the saying goes, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
