My Greatest Supporters

My greatest supporters have been my mom, dad, brother, and grandmother. They are the first ones I have to thank. Some other supporters I have to thank have been my childhood best friend, Joana, and my friends from SMC like Odaliz, Maile, and Sarahi, and many others. Thank you all for your love and support, especially when I doubted myself all those times.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

Living on campus with my suitemates in Ageno East and the late-night food runs during the weekdays and the fun weekend trips to San Francisco. I also won't forget the many times the fire alarm would randomly go off and how everyone in the building would all have to wait outside, and how we would all laugh. I'll remember that forever.

My Next Chapter

I plan on starting my internship at the Stockton Younger Women's Task Force in their public relations department. I also plan on applying to law schools in the Fall to hopefully achieve my dream of being a sports attorney in the future.
