Dreams Come True
Thursday, June 12, 2014
The moment Asuncion Susy Despaigne discovered computers she became instantly fascinated. She spent time figuring out how computers work, teaching herself as much as she could. When a friend referred her to Brown Mackie College — Miami, she took the first step in the journey to make her dream come true.
Asuncion flourished in the supportive academic environment. “All the instructors and staff were extremely welcoming and easy to go to with any issues,” she says. “I already had some knowledge in my field but the professors at Brown Mackie College — Miami made it possible for me to understand and absorb all information given throughout each course.”
Upon graduating in 2014, Asuncion accepted her Associate of Science degree in Information Technology with pride. She quickly found employment with The Home Depot in Miami, Florida as head cashier/IT technician.
“I make sure all registers and computers are working properly, and troubleshoot problems as needed,” she says. Asuncion works to program scanner guns as she sets up pin pads at the cash stations each day. She contacts a contracted IT company for help with any problem that she can’t solve on her own.
“I am proud of the fact that I finally made it through college without dropping out. I have always had a passion for computers, and now I have turned it into a dream career,” she says. “I love my work!”
