Success Story

Luis Brito Arias is pursuing a BS in Computer Science and Information Security at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. He aspires to be a well-rounded software engineer and hopes to better the lives of others through the power of technology. At John Jay, Luis has found different ways of helping others such as serving as Vice President of the Computer Science Club and bringing CodePath's introductory iOS Development course to John Jay. Also, he contributes to CodePath’s national iOS course as a TA where he assists students to debug their code and clarify different concepts. Luis truly cares for others and strongly believes that if you help others succeed in any way, shape, or form, you are also succeeding.

We're excited to announce that Luis will be joining Accenture as a Software Architect Analyst after graduating from John Jay in May 2022.

Programs like this allow me to share my recruiting knowledge so that a wider pool of students can access awesome opportunities at Airbnb and beyond.
