I am a student at the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science ( TAMS). I am passionate about public health, science and technology and education. I believe that I can be a pioneer for change by living the lifestyles that I advocate for.
My mission is to be academically successful and promote youth wellness through research and by educating my community about making healthy choices in diet, exercise and sleep.
I believe that learning and serving should come full circle, and I try to model that in everything I do.
