Jeremy Diederich: Hi, I am a student leader at Purdue University Northwest. I am a part of both the College of Technology and the Honors College, as well as being involved in multiple clubs including Circle K international a service volunteering organization, and PNW ROAR Cyber Club, a cyber security initiative at PNW. I am a hopeful, almost childish, scholar hoping to make a big impact on the world. I aspire to meet every opportunity presented to me with a high level of enthusiasm and believe the easy way to success is being prepared. I love meeting new and diverse people. I hope to travel all over the world, work for a big company and possibly the government. I would enjoy starting my own company and would love to see it grow as large as Apple, Microsoft, or Google. Titans of industry have always fascinated me, and I hope to become one myself. So as you see I have big dreams and I blame that entirely on Purdue University Northwest for giving me the opportunity to learn, grow, and succeed.
