Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born in Illinois, but my family moved to Turlock, California about eighteen months later. Growing up, my mom homeschooled me and my seven siblings. Throughout my life, I have always enjoyed creating and making things. At a young age, my dad taught me woodworking. Since then, I have built many different things from bookshelves to miniature swords and furniture, to bows and arrows. Currently, I still enjoy woodworking, but I have also started metalworking and tinkering with electronics. I am also a photographer and videographer. Recently, I started a professional photography business with my sister. I just finished my first semester at UC Merced as a mechanical engineering student. In the future, I want to work and research in a field related to robotics, aerospace, or bionics.

Interesting Factoid

I also enjoy drama. I was a dancer, actor, and dance teacher for many years.

What I Stand For  

Volunteer Experience

Turlock, CA, USA

Jun 2017 - Oct 2020
In addition to working at Westside ministries, I also volunteered at their summer camps. I had the opportunity to help set up camp and participate in the performances. The first year I helped out, I was able to help write the performances with the director of the ministry, my sister, and a close friend of mine. All of the performances were structured to teach the campers important life lessons. The skits I helped write were based on how to respond to bullying and differing opinions. Additionally, I helped manage a ropes course that was designed to help the campers overcome their fears. Overall, I really enjoyed volunteering at Westside's summer camps and working with the campers.
