My Greatest Supporters

My mom who has given me unconditional support and love through all my endeavors. My siblings who always have my back no matter what. My friends, especially Sean, Maya, JJ and Adriana, who never fail to hype me up and push me to be better everyday. And of course, my amazing mentors, Ardi, Loan and Christine, who gave me countless opportunities to grow throughout my time at SMC <3

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

Staying in the IC after APASA events and hanging out with the family. Studying in the library atrium with friends. 2051 Ascot Dr. (iykyk). ACN rehearsals/shows. Spontaneous photo shoots, hikes, sunsets, drives, and alladat! It's so hard to pick one when I've had the most amazing four years with life-long friends :')

My Next Chapter

I hope to apply for Physician's Assistant schools or Masters of Nursing by Spring 2022 and begin my graduate program by Fall 2022. In the meantime, I will be exploring those two options through volunteer work and shadowing to help decide which path is for me.
