About Me

An enthusiastic, passionate student with interests in health science, education, and justice. Hardworking, positive, and friendly individual with leadership and community experience through school clubs and extra curriculars. Active learner who values time management and enjoys working in diverse groups. Looking to make a positive impact in the community through work in non-profit organizations. Values the strength of student voice and the development of the quality of life.

Feel free to send me a message whenever is most convenient for you. I am always willing to lend an ear.

My Vision

I want to wake up to a world with no pain, no suffering, no discrimination, and no inequality. I want to wake up to a world where every single individual has the same, equal educational and economic opportunities as one another. We are all full of wondrous potential, and it should not go to waste based on geographic location, sex, gender, sexual orientation, or socio-economic environment. I have been blessed with multifarious opportunities of education, family, friends, shelter, safety, and a future. It is terribly unfair that individuals, especially youth, are unable to experience the quotidian pleasures based on aspects over which they have little to no control. I know a perfect, idyllic world may be a long shot, but it is something I will work towards every single day, and continue to encourage each and every person to do so, as well.
