Scholar Bio

I’ve always been passionate about helping children, this is why I want to be come a teacher. Growing up there were only a handful of teachers that actually inspired me to continue with school. So I want to give back and become a person a young child can remember and hopefully my positivity can inspire them to keep going.

How the San Marcos Promise Impacted You

The San Marco Promise impacted me in so many ways. It kept me on track to do my best. I’ve become more vocal, meaning if I’m ever stuck on something I go and get help because my education means everything to me. I’ve become more involved in my community which I’ve never really done before and I’m glad that I have because I’ve gotten a lot of connect to help further my career.

Something About You That is a Surprise

Something that may surprise you is that I’m a totally nerd. I love watching star wars and reading comic books and I always get a chance to go to comic con during the summer. And I love Disney! I have a pass and I go at least three times a month even if it’s just to get a churro.
