ALUMNA PROFILE:

Lita A. Cabezas

1994-1997 (Associate of Science)
1999-2001 (Bachelors of Science)
Touro College School of General Studies
Main Campus, New York

Lita A. Cabezas enrolled at Touro College�s School of General Studies in the Fall of 1994. She graduated with an Associate of Science degree in Data Communications. After taking a recess to concentrate on raising her daughter, Lita returned to Touro College to pursue her Bachelor�s degree. She will be graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Systems/Data Communications this June.

A native New Yorker from a Hispanic background (her mother is from Ecuador), Lita took a work-study position in the Computer department assisting the senior computer technician campus. While at Touro, Lita also tutored students weak in math, accounting, Spanish and computers. In addition to pursing her college education, Lita worked in a parochial school teaching computer theory hands-on to students in grades 2-8. The experience she had gained both as an assistant in computer technology and as a tutor helped to enrich her students' learning.

At present, Lita is the Computer Technician for the Health Sciences Division in Manhattan.

�Life has been wonderful to me,� says Lita. �The greatest blessing is my daughter Lidia; everything I have accomplished has been with her in mind. My hope is that she will look up to me and follow my example.�

One of many imprints Touro has made on me is the guidance of my professors and lecturers towards my major. I will also treasure the friends made. I feel that Touro College has so much to offer beyond the obvious benefits of a college education. Getting involved in extra curricular activities and meeting people who are true role models is a priceless experience.

As a soon-to-be alumnus, my message to all is that we should be proud of our accomplishments, lend a helping hand to colleagues, and be helpful to the new students who are the future of tomorrow.
