Hi, my name is Alex Aragon. I’m 18 years old and graduated from Pompano Beach High School in 2010. I came to Florida Gulf Coast University for its relaxed student enviornment and its relatively close location to my house. My major is currently Criminal Justice, for I want to pursue a career with the federal government in law enforcement.
In my high school years, I played the drums for the marching band. I started my freshman year with no prior knowledge of the instrument. I progressed each year and finally made it to drum captain my senior year. I love music and loved to play it. I was also privileged enough to travel to many foreign countries throughout my life time. I’ve been to Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Hungary, South Africa, China, and Costa Rica, to name a few. One interesting thing that occurred while I was in China, was that my group that I was with had to be quarantined because of the swine flu pandemic. We had to spend seven days in a hotel with no windows or air conditioning. The reason for our quarantine was because someone on our plane had a fever, and 11 rows in front of and behind the sick person had to be contained.
All in all I have a very interesting, cultural life. My father being from Costa Rica, and my mother being from New Jersey.
In this class, I would like to investigate: the pulling of US troops out of Afghanistan. I think this is good because people have very different opinions about this topic. Also: Do you think Obama is a good or bad President. Another: Should the government control what we eat? Last but not least: Mac vs. PC?
