Student Spotlight: Aldo Andrés Quelopana Retamal
Aldo Andrés Quelopana Retamal is from Antofagasta, Chile. He has been studying at Nomen Global since the end of March and will continue to study here until the end of July. Aldo already has a firm grasp of the English language; however, he wants to continually improve his English so that he can achieve proficient scores on the TOEFL and GMAT. His goal is to attend the MBA program (Master of Business Administration) at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. After Aldo finishes at Nomen Global, he will return to Chile to work until he is accepted to his program. He hopes to return to Provo with his whole family while he is working toward his MBA.
Aldo is familiar with difficult tests. In Chile, passing a group of exams called the PAA is the only way to enter the most prestigious universities. The PAA assesses language, history, math, biology, and other subjects. Aldo took these exams and not only scored very well on all sections of the exam, but he scored the second highest in all of Chile in the math portion! Way to go, Aldo! That was a great success, and we know you will do well in the future!
In his free time (especially in the US), Aldo watches TV and plays video games. He also plays basketball every Thursday with members from his church. He is also very service-oriented. Aldo hopes to find ways to serve in his church while he is still living in Provo. Also also loves all types of pasta! His mother even says of him, "You should have been born in Italy!"
Among Aldo's educational goals, he also has goals to have five children (right now he has two) and serve a church service mission with his wife in the future. He believes that his religion (the LDS Church) is the most important thing to him.
