What 3 words describe you best? Observant, Caring, and Organized.
What makes you proud? I’m most proud of my dedication and continued commitment to helping my community obtain and maintain a community garden, which was a project I started while I was a senior in high school. I am also proud because this summer makes the second time that we have a running program for kids of the community to learn about healthy foods and living.
What encourages you to seek your dreams and accomplish your goals? Something that encourages me to seek my dreams and accomplish my goals is to know that regardless of how difficult something may seem, it is a stepping stone towards my personal and career ambitions. I also take comfort in knowing that there are always lessons to be learned, even when we don’t recognize them as they present themselves, but when ready we will recognize them and embrace them.
What makes you happy? Something that makes me happy is when the people I love and care for are happy. Another is that when I set my mind to completing tasks, no matter how small or large it may be, I accomplish them knowing that I put my best effort forward.
Why did you join Pathways to Success? I joined Pathways to Success because they provide great support for its participants and the staff is always willing to do whatever they can to help personally and career-wise. I feel providing support is the best thing you can give to anyone, especially when it is coming from a genuine place of concern, in which you have the best interest of students at heart.
