DESIGNING
YOUR OWN
FUTURE
MDC Adult Education
Program Helps Students
Achieve More
The path to earning a college degree doesn’t always begin
right after high school. Just ask Leandro Dorta Duque,
an electrical engineering and computer science major at
Cornell University, who arrived in the United States from
Cuba five years ago with limited English skills, no SAT scores
and a dream to become an engineer.

“I came to the U.S when I was 20 and was undocumented


for a year,” said Duque, who because of his legal status was
not eligible to enroll in college and pay in-state tuition. On
the advice of a friend, he decided to enroll in non-credit
English courses through Adult Education at Miami Dade
College while he waited for his residency.

It was there that Duque met Ana Maria Guadayol, an


English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) professor
and advisor at MDC, Kendall Campus, who helped him lay
the foundation for his future. “The mission of our ESOL
program is to help non-native English speakers learn the
language so they can either get into college or back into the
workforce,” Guadayol said. “Together, we figure out what
path they’re going to take and I map out the steps to help
guide them.”

Duque’s path included learning English while studying for


the SATs, getting a scholarship to attend the MDC Honors
College and earning an Associate in Arts in Computer
Engineering. Then he successfully transferred to a
baccalaureate program at Cornell University – all within
three years.

“I always had engineering on my mind but was lost when


it came to the process of how to pursue it,” Duque said. “I
had no idea how anything worked in the U.S., so it’s thanks
to the people who guided me that I’m at Cornell now.”

But his journey isn’t over yet. Duque plans to pursue a


master’s in engineering at Cornell next year. “My ultimate
goal is to one day create my own company related to
medical devices,” he said.
