I am currently taking prerequisite classes to major in Nursing. I want a career that involves giving back to the community and helping those who need it. With everything going on in the world, my career path might change. My current hobbies include painting and eating, my two favorite things in life. I was born in Oakland and have lived in California my whole life. My only goal as of right now is to be happy and stay motivated. I don’t like planning my life out because things can easily change. In the end, I just want to be able to support my parents the way they supported me my whole life. Make sure to keep on smiling!

I was born and raised in the Bay Area around much diversity that would inspire me to major in History. I enjoy all aspects of History, although at times the truth could be difficult to hear. I believe we all deserve to be educated on matters even if there are no direct ties between the learner and the topic at hand. My goal is to do what makes me happy while continuing to better myself, leaving a positive impact on those around me.
