Biography

Who I am: Liz-Hasbleydi Guzmán Maldonado De Langlois.  I am an independent fashion model with a background in engineering, and I am in the process of starting my own company (Aesthetics+Fashion+Technology)  :)  I am a renaissance woman or polymath. I have many talents such as: creativity, analytical thinking, spirituality, and sensibility. I am interested in many things including: entertainment, technology, entrepreneurship, fashion, art, sports, philanthropy, and humanitarianism. My studies: I have a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. I majored in Electronic Engineering with an emphasis on telecommunications (satellite links), digital data transmission (signal processing), & wireless  communication.  I also minored in computer science and software engineering & network computer systems. My university: I attended La Universidad Francisco José De Caldas in Bogota, Colombia.  Complementary computer science studies and software engineering by self-motivation. My work as engineer: In Citigroup I monitored, reviewed and supported the network systems and telecommunications. In Anditel outsourcing of BP (British Petroleum Company) I worked on planning, documentation, drawings using AutoCAD and implementation of satellite and radio microwave links on the pipeline in Colombia. In MCI WorldCom-IT&S I worked on outsourcing participation in implementation and support in satellite systems (Andrew Antenna) and for Motorola-Outsourcing I did system analysis, troubleshooting radio wave links and repeater stations. Why and how I decided to be an engineer: I was good with analytical thinking and had a creative mind, and engineering gave me the option of combining them to make ideas into reality and using them in the real world. When I started there were few women in my classes. I was awarded a scholarship for academic performance. My vision: As a future entrepreneur I realize that being an engineer and a fashion model with appreciation for art, design and performing arts have some common points such as aesthetics, class, and timeless results. I want to integrate those and make a product related to both that will contribute to society and the world. Where I am from: I was born in Bogota, Colombia.  My heritage is a mix of Native-Chibcha from Colombia with Spanish and German-English cultures. My country of origin is a rich combination of cultures. What languages I know: I love to interact with other cultures and that inspires me to learn languages and read literature and biographies from other parts of the world. I speak Spanish, English, Basic French and I understand Portuguese and Italian. What people who know me think of me: Most people say I am futuristic, a visionary who integrates new ideas, an accomplished dreamer, analytical, a risk taker, loyal, honest, ethical, adventurous, humble and leader who inspires to others to be the same. Causes I care about: Autism Speaks, Animal Welfare, Arts and Culture, Children, Education, Environment, Health, Science and Technology. Future Goal: I would like to be a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF.    "You can be creative in anything - in math, science, engineering, philosophy - as much as you can in music or in painting or in dance"...     Always be a work that progress and love what you do:)

Answers by Liz-Hasbleydi Guzmán Maldonado

Ikram, At university level for Electrical Engineering program  is not expected to have high experience in computer programming when you start. The focus in Electrical Engineering will be calculus, mathematics, physics, chemistry, etc and over the course of 4 years many other classes around to the application of those theories. Electrical engineering is a field of engineering that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. In Electronic Engineering the programming (process of Coding) is part of your freshman year classes but not the main focus of the career. If you are interest to learn about programming to have more knowledge before your university studies is up to you. :)
