Podcast Episode 03: Pivoting on Your Educational Path

Jesus Cortez smiles in his UW shirt in front of a Madison lake photo next to a red box that says "Your Future, Your Way: a podcast about professional programs" and the UW-Madison Crest.

Jesus Cortez was an engineering major at UW–Madison, until he changed his mind and changed direction. Having a lot of time to think and examine his values in the midst of the pandemic allowed him to home in on his passion. He’s now enrolled in a special education master’s program through UW–Madison Profession Degrees & Certificates, and he’s sharing his journey from New York City to Madison.
