Tech’s valedictorian, Im, knew she wanted to be No. 1

BY DAN BAER
THE DAILY ITEM


    Nisa Im knew exactly what she wanted to do with her career before she was old enough to obtain working papers, and thanks to her drive and focus through four years of high school the Lynn Vocational and Technical Institute valedictorian is ready to pursue her dream at Worcester Polytechnic Institute this fall.
    Im, 17, credits a sixth-grade teacher at Marshall Middle School with first inspiring her love for computers, something she pursued three years later when she arrived at LVTI and entered the computer tech program.

    Although she was a bit overwhelmed when she first arrived at the school, she quickly became accustomed to her new surroundings and got to work.

    "As a freshman I was overwhelmed. I didn't even know that there (were) two buildings, and I knew about four people," she said. "But then I decided I was going to run for class officer and I was surprised at how many votes I got because I didn't know that many people even knew who I was."

    Im says it wasn't easy becoming the valedictorian,but it was a goal she set early on, and as she continued along in school it became more and more important to her to continue getting A's so she did not disappoint her parents.

    Along with her studies, Im has been involved with basketball and soccer at the school, and has been working two jobs, one as a lifeguard at the Sheraton Ferncroft and one at The Children's Place in the North Shore Mall.

    Her long-term goal is to graduate from WPI and build her own computer.

    "I am majoring in computer engineering because I like to be hands on," she said. "I want to build my own computer."

    Although she said many of her friends chose to attend more traditional high schools after leaving Marshall, Im prefers the atmosphere and opportunity that a vocational school like Tech has to offer every student.

    "It has been a great experience from the beginning," she said. "You have the best of both worlds here. You can go to college after school or you can come to one of the shops and learn a trade."
