I would like to be a commercial airline pilot and fly internationally. I have wanted to pursue this career since I was young, but it is risky. I would also be happy as a biomedical engineer.

My dream job would be to work as a computer programmer for a major company such as Microsoft, Google, or Apple. This is my dream job because I really enjoy working with computers. I would like to work at a larger company because the pay and hours would be better than at a smaller company.

Career Field: Information Technology

Hello, my name is Isaiah Gutierrez. I am a junior at Colorado Destinations Career Academy (CODCA). I have been in this program my entire high school life and I love virtual learning because it allows me to be more independent. I have been interested in the Information Technology (IT) field and I am in the IT career pathway at CODCA. I love coding with software, and I was able to learn so much of it because my school has in-depth classes that explore programming languages. I have absolutely enjoyed C# coding and 3D modeling as I definitely plan on using this knowledge for college and a career in IT. I’m a student advisor because I get to learn how to work within a team in a virtual environment and gain a solid foundation for my future.

Career Field: Healthcare

My name is Veronica Palmer, but I like to go by Vee. I’m a junior at Destinations Career Academy of Colorado. I am currently in the healthcare career pathway taking the CNA I course and will be CNA certified in May! I have been in online school for five years and I love that all of my classes and learning are conducted in an easy-to-follow place I can always access. I am the current president of my school’s HOSA chapter and am part of a student leadership team. I hope to become a nurse after high school, but right now I enjoy volunteering through my church, attempting to cook new foods, playing with my dog, and going camping in the summer!
