My mom is my biggest motivator because she is the one who has dedicated her entire life to helping me succeed. She keeps me grounded and continues to light up my desire to pursue my educational journey.

I am most passionate about challenging the status quo through the lens of someone in a community with limited resources. Through this challenge, I can begin changing the way we are threated in “the land of the free”.
