My Greatest Supporters

My parents and my younger brother. My mom and dad have been behind me, supporting me every step of the way and do not show any signs of slowing down. They motivate me to work harder every day. My younger brother is my best friend and I can't be anymore thankful to have such an amazing partner in crime.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

Jack Callan, Javier Rivera, and Ryan Ramirez have been some of the best roommates I could possibly ask for. Being able to spend the most unusual school year of our lives with these guys has given me many very memorable moments and I am thankful I got to spend my last year of at Saint Mary's with them.

My Greatest Supporters

I would like to extend my gratitude to my family for their unconditional support these past four years, they have been alongside me through the best times and the worst times. They believed in me when I did not believe in myself. Finally, thank you to my friends and teammates for their words of encouragement, teaching me life lessons, and making the many necessary trips to iTea.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

My favorite memory was when our rugby team played Fresno for our senior day. Both teams were undefeated up until that point and the game came down to the last second as we pulled out the victory. It was an immense success for our club as a whole. I will also miss making an effort to attend every meal in Oliver Hall. Another notable memory is when I passed the Gateway exam after my 12th attempt.

My Next Chapter

Currently I am applying to medical Post-Baccalaureate programs for the upcoming year. Then I hope to one day achieve my life long goal to enroll into medical school.

Shoutout to my twin sis Anica, Mom, and Dad. Words aren't enough to describe how much you've strengthened me. I never expected that I'd make it this far, and yet here I am. I purple you. I would also like to shoutout my APASA family, Jumpstart homies, Homeboyz apartment, dance community, and all of my friends who've stayed by my side.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

Fav memory? Well, all of the moments when my friends and I laughed together come to mind. In class, a boba shop, or a skatepark in the middle of the night. ALL of it. I laughed so much I'll probably cough up a lung soon. Worth it. Also, I would just like to add that it's been an honor being the English program's comedic genius. I exist to entertain, and I'm glad y'all liked my terrible jokes :,)

My Next Chapter

I'm not good at looking towards the future, haha. What else is there but now, ya know? But if there's one thing I can guarantee about what's next, it's that I'll keep trying to embrace every aspect of myself. Instead of trying to be a "good" person, I'll just try to be me :) The real me is just as epic as the heroes I've written about in my stories, so I'll try to focus more on my own. 할 수 있어!

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

How can I choose just one!? I'll never forget all the times I studied in the Psych Annex, said hi to friends during passing period in Dante Quad, did homework in the library atrium, spent time with friends on Rheem & Ascot, worked out in the rec center, shared long talks in my car, and overall built meaningful connections with people who I now consider family!
