The Job of My Dreams

by Francisco Javier Llamas

When I was a child, I was always watching American films about “Wall Street”. Perhaps, unbeknown to me, I wanted to copy that lifestyle. I guess I admired that way of working. I admired the passion for accomplishing objectives, that ambition and desire to succeed. A place where if you work you get it.

At the age of 18, I decided to study economics at the university. I studied finances as a subject and the exchange and financial market was the best part for me. I was gradually taking steps to learn about this subject.

After five years working in a company, I chose to do a Master´s on Executive Financial Management. Intriguingly, during this Master`s I had 10 days of practical training in New York. We visited different big companies and we spent a morning watching the stock exchange.

After this trip, I was clear about the fact that I would want to work in New York. It’s been eight years since then. I convinced my wife to come here to work. She accepted and she found a good job in New York. Currently, my job is to improve my English. However, I hope my dream will be fulfilled soon.

Francisco Javier Llamas is from Spain. He has lived in New York City since December 2016. He wants to live here a few years. First of all, he has to learn and improve his English. He would like to do a finances related course, and then he wants to work in this city that he admires. Achieving these goals would be a dream for him.  Francisco write, “The course at the Harlem Library is helping me while I enjoy doing sports in Central Park. Will I finish the New York Marathon?”
