Veronica Benites A Current City College Student

My name is Veronica Teixeira Benites I’m a foreign student originally from Brazil. I came to California in March of 2008 holding a BS in Chemistry and no English skills at all. It took me two years of my staying here to develop the English level I have and I’m still learning. 

For over two years I worked as a physical chemistry analyst at the Environmental Monitoring Department of my state in Brazil. I performed water analyses and sample water collecting. I also worked as a chemistry tutor in a Brazilian University where I graduated in 2007 and as a trainee in a pharmaceutical industry also in Brazil. 

Currently, I’m attending Bridge to Biotechnology Program at CCSF and preparing myself to the opportunity that the program offers, an internship in the scientific field. My goal is a master’s degree in biochemistry as well as a PhD in the same field and I’m sure that bridge to Biotech will help me through this process. So far I can say that I have been exposed to professors that are not only knowledgeable but friendly and doing their best to make us students future colleagues.
