My dream job is to become an IT project manager. An IT project manager assigns IT projects to ensure adherence to budget, schedule, and the scope of projects. I chose this profession because I have strong leadership skills and look forward to creating and collaborating to develop future IT projects.

I’m, Jacolby Shinholster, a student associate for Alabama Destinations Career Academy (ALDCA), and here’s a little bit about me. My favorite subjects are English and world history. I enjoy reading daily. I have a very active lifestyle. Walking and riding my bike on scenic trails, all the while listening to birds singing, are fun experiences for me. One of my favorite treats in spring and summer is working while gardening, growing succulents and flowers with my mother. I’ve also tried growing a few vegetables and that was also rewarding. Cooking is another favorite pastime of mine; I think cooking gives you a chance to show your creative side. Moreover, I like experimenting…creating my own recipes or different dishes. Family time is especially important for me. My family and I enjoy the following activities together: watching movies, playing baseball and volleyball, and working on vehicles. It’s fun and exciting learning something new while at the same time preparing for the future. Now that you know me a little bit better, may we all grow together as a team.
