Personal Interests

I am an animal person. My favorite subcategory of animal is baby animals, and I will spend hours watching videos of them. I love food, especially breakfast foods, however, I have never met a food that I did not like. It is a hobby of mine to try new food finds alongside good company. I am fascinated by nature and love the outdoors. I seek out new adventures any chance I can in different parts of the world or the city I am living in. My family is my foundation. They always keep me optimistic, humble, and inspire me to meet each day with a smile.

Educational Philosophy

We acquire meaningful learning in diverse ways. How you choose to react to what you learn will represent who you are and who you hope to become. Learning is hard and will inevitably become harder as you grow…this is the gift of life. We learn difficult things because we must evolve into our best selves. Why would you have it be any other way? Ultimately, I believe what one does with their education is what will create the positive change they desire to see in the world.
