CompTIA is excited to host a live video panel event to celebrate and learn from recent high school graduate, Joshwa Bispat, and his remarkable achievements at Thomas A. Edison CTE High School’s Cybersecurity program.

This live event will be a panel discussion featuring Joshwa Bispat, his mother Petrina Bispat, his technology teacher, Jessie Kalloo, and Thomas Edison Principal, Moses Ojeda. The panel will be moderated by Angel Pineiro, Vice President, Strategic Academic Relationships, at CompTIA.

You'll learn details about Joshwa's journey and those who supported him in achieving:

     •  Nine certifications (including CompTIA ITF+, A+, and Network+)- 21 college credits
     •  1st place at both city and state levels in the SkillsUSA Internetworking Contest
     •  Acceptance into New York Technical College
