about mcny

Lina Galindo's story

I enrolled at MCNY for the Spring 2002 semester and plan to graduate next year with my Bachelor of Business Administration Degree.

My son was born while I was still in high school, and after I got my diploma I went to work in a restaurant. I saw an MCNY ad on the subway while on my way to work, and one day I just decided to call. The person I spoke with in the Admissions Office told me they were having entrance exams the next day. I showed up, took the test, passed and registered.

For me, one of the best things about MCNY is the flexibility and the hours. I'm able to keep my job because I’m taking classes on Friday nights and during the day on Saturday.

MCNY has completely transformed my life from being a teen mother with no hope and no plans for the future, to having the confidence and skills that will allow me to have a business or a career and create a good life for my son and myself.

Eventually, I want to open a bakery that caters to the Hispanic community. I want to be a role model for all the teen mothers who think they have no future. I’m twenty years old and I believe that my MCNY education will help me to have a great future.
