Omar Osvaldo Romandia was a student majoring in Economics at Arizona State University. He is the son of hard-working Mexican immigrants and proud to be the first in his family to attend college, soon to graduate with honors. Omar is an active member of his community, specifically serving underprivileged youth in their pursuits to attend college. Being a product of the public education system, he knows first-hand what changes are necessary to create competitive citizens of education. In response to Proposition 300 in Arizona that brought on unnecessary tuition hikes to hundreds of undocumented students, Omar was a member of the non-profit Manzana Foundation that helped bring affordable classes to students by establishing a satellite campus in the valley. These efforts helped keep over 300 students in college during complicated educational circumstances. Omar also developed a pilot program aimed to promote and foster STEM-ready youth in high school. By bridging the gap between technological readiness and classroom instruction, high school students can learn to enhance their problem-solving skills, yielding benefits in college and in life. After graduating, Omar hopes to pursue a Masters in Information Management and System to acquire the skills necessary to change how the public education system uses technology. His ultimate goal was to create an educational platform that would allow teachers and students to perform at their best.
