Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born and raised in San Jose, CA and am a Business Administration major at the University of Southern California. I have a passion for civic engagement and learning more about skills that will help me contribute to success larger than just myself. I also love visual art (and I draw/paint as much as I can in my free time), corgis, and mythology.

Interesting Factoid

I have over 150 mini succulent pots in my backyard (accumulated through quarantine free time).
