One Sentence About Me  

"Don't leave home without your sword - your intellect - thank you Alan Moore I never will."

Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California on November 26, 1999. I am currently 21 years old and just finished my first semester at Cal State La. I currently do not work and have not worked since I started my first year at a community college. I decided to do this so I could focus only on school and give my full attention to school without being compromised or being tied to work in order to move. I only helped my Mom in finishing her work like helping her to finish the small projects of greeting cards and merchandising like refilling magazines. I never got paid so therefore it does not count as a job. I have really evolved as a student coming from high school and transitioning to college. In high school I was just an average student that just cared only of just reaching the bare minimum which is a C and not putting any effort or striving to do better. It was until when I got to college where I matured and took school more seriously. One of the factors that made me take school seriously was that time is money and that there is a limited amount of funds that you will get in order to get your degree. This really pushed me and made me strive to get higher grades. I started to get straight A's in college because I decided to pour in my effort and time in making sure that everything that I would do would be something of high quality and something that I would feel proud of. I later found out that by doing this I would start to retain the things that I would learn in my classes and begin to start to apply them to the real world which would in turn make me not forget about what I had just learned. I am a hardworking and responsible person who always never gives up even when the situation seems dire and hopeless to begin with. I think one of the hardest abilities of being able to master as a human being is being self-aware. I thought I was right because I would pass my classes with an average grade in high school thinking that was ok but my honesty was not present in that situation. I was not self-aware of myself that I was just conforming to a set of standards and not deciding to break away from the mold. Fortunately, that changed when I started to go to a community college known as LACC.

Interesting Factoid

Throughout my three years at my community college I was on the Dean's Honor's List until I I got my Associate's degree for transfer in Business Administration.

Volunteer Experience

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Aug 2014 - May 2016
I attended Hollywood High and was in the teaching career academy where I volunteered to tutor little children at an elementary school. I tutored little children on how to read, write, and help them finish small little projects that the teacher would assign. It was me and a class that volunteered. Everyone was assigned only one child that they had to tutor and help. I also tutored at another elementary school which was Selma Avenue Elementary School. The first elementary school I tutored was Gardner Street Elementary School. That took place during my freshman year in high school.
