Junior Damian Ofria is continuing to prepare for a future as a mechanic through his work at the Nassau BOCES Barry Tech Automotive Technology program as well as through an internship with Colvin Auto Parts in Merrick.

The combination of the program and the internship have allowed Damian to grow as a future professional mechanic. His knowledge has expanded with regular duties such as cutting valves and checking their straightness, pressure testing engine blocks and cutting brake drums.

Damian looks forward to completing his high school studies and starting his journey toward hopefully owning his own business one day.
