My Greatest Supporters

My greatest supporters are my Mom, sister, Dad, friends, boyfriend, and dog. My friends and family have always pushed me to follow my ambitions and passions without losing sight of the things that make life worth living.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

One of my favorite memories from my time at SMC would have to be singing with my friend Tiffany in Br. Martin's choir. We would meet weekly to practice for performances. It was fantastic to have time each week spent practicing my favorite hobby with one of my favorite people.

My Next Chapter

After graduation, I will be spending my summer as a student ambassador for the Faith in the Vaccine Project. As a part of this project, I will be working to help people get accurate information about and access to the COVID-19 vaccine in the San Diego area. Eventually, I would like to go to graduate school and become an English teacher.
