What are your current ambitions?

As of right now, I am a student at UC Berkeley and am focusing on my classwork and enjoying
my time in college. I am hoping to go to Medical School to become a pediatrician since I really
love kids! In the future, I would love to start my own charity for underprivileged youth that would
assist in access to a better education and helping them with the whole college process.

Where do you find your motivation?

The book Rising Strong by Brene Brown has really inspired me and made a lot of challenges in
life make sense. My mom and friends also motivate me to keep gaining my education.
