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!

My greatest supporter is my mom. Shout out to pops too.
Thank you to the Sekona family for introducing me to rugby.
Thank you to Ryan Burke and Coach Mateo for talking me out of playing college football so I can focus on rugby full time. You guys believed in me before I did.
Thank you to the Oakland Warthogs for helping me financially with scholarships.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

Memories I will never forget are being with my teammates almost 24/7. Traveling with these guys to multiple countries, and winning games. We went through it all together. I also will never forget some of my classmates that helped me get comfortable at SMC when I transferred there. Especially during the seminar classes when I didn't say a word. Good looking out

My Next Chapter

I want to accomplish everything I put my mind towards. My show I'm having this summer with my guy Henry, pursuing Rugby overseas, and investing. We can start with that. After that, taking risks, traveling and learning new things yearly. No Ceilings Entertainment coming in summer 2021! Tap in with us

Favorite Quote

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God... As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

My favorite SMC memory was sophomore year when my roommate and I went to Taco Bell one night. It was our first time going there so we had to use Siri and it told us to turn into the parking lot which was not clear enough directions for us because we need up driving up and over the sidewalk, onto the lawn, over a small hill and finally down into the parking lot... We then got the tacos.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

Traveling to Cuernavaca, Mexico for Jan Term 2020! Not only did I have an amazing time immersing myself in the many cultures of Mexico and eating delicious food, but I learned about Mexico’s rich history, and discovered more about my identity and place in the world as a Mexican American. It’s an experience that I’ll always look back on and continue to learn from!
