Who I Am  

A Little About Me

It's rare that we, as human beings, find our passions in life and are able to pursue them. But it's even rarer that we find a passion that also coincides with a contribution to society, but I think I have found mine. My purpose is to use my voice to change the lives around me. There are a million different ways to help people but no method gives me more happiness or satisfaction than talking. Having an honest conversation with someone is, in my opinion, one of the most intimate interactions we can experience. And it’s in that intimacy that true growth occurs within both parties. If I continue to pursue this passion, I think that I can not only improve the lives of individuals but also continue to improve myself. In the future, I hope to get my masters in psychology and become a therapist. My dream is to change the world by helping individuals - and I will work tirelessly until this dream becomes a reality!

I would like to get a small and trendy tattoo, visit at least 40 out of the 50 states, open up my own counselling practice, and learn how to whistle (I still don't know how, haha).

Clubs and Communities

Diversity Club

Founder and President

Aug 2020 - Present
Especially in a school where the majority of the population is white, upper class, and, to be frank, extremely unaware, I thought that starting a diversity club was a necessary step in an effort to not only support minority communities and the fight for racial equality but to also educate those in the majority on how to be more accepting.

Speech and Debate

Team Capatin

Aug 2015 - Present
I have competed in all three areas of Forensics: speech, debate, and interpretation. My team has over 30 members and is currently ranked among the highest in Colorado.
