Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. As the daughter of two Mexican immigrants, every new experience growing up in this country is a new experience for them. My upbringing has had a significant role in shaping my dedicated and resilient personality. I seek and take advantage of all opportunities that present themselves. Additionally, I am a curious person who is always willing to explore new subjects and areas. Because of this, I have spent my past summers attending courses and programs at various institutes such as Stanford and Harvard. Besides exploring my curiosities, my favorite moments were definitely meeting new individuals and learning new perspectives.

Interesting Factoid

Contrary to popular belief, I think mint-flavored foods and beverages are delicious.
