As a sophomore at Cass Technical High School Jose was focused on succeeding in school and making sure he got accepted to college. His mentor, Josh Berg, director of innovation ventures at Magna, was always there for him, giving Jose the motivation he needed to succeed, and helping him build his confidence and communication skills. Today, Jose is in his third year at Eastern Michigan University where he’s majoring in finance. In 2020, he will begin an internship with Amazon as an area manager where he will lead between 50-200 people at a fulfillment center.
“I’m proud of the fact that I’m in college and doing so well,” said Jose. “I know a lot of people like me don’t get this opportunity, and I’m thankful that Josh and Winning Futures gave me the confidence to determine my future.”
