Best Advice I’ve ever received:

Either “It is better to fail then to never try at all” or “Nothing will work unless you do”

Where do you see yourself in five years?

In five years, I see myself in medical school. Being that I have two years of college already completed with my associate degrees, I should have already graduated with my bachelor’s and moved on to Graduate school.

If you could change anything in this world what would it be and why?

If I could change one thing about the world, I would love to see a difference in the lives of people who are suffering in third-world countries. I believe every individual deserves the basic necessities and every child deserves access to an education.

If you could invite 3 people, who would they be and why (non-relatives)?

Jesus: Growing up attending Catholic school and attending church all of my life, I know He is how I am where I am today.

Franklin D. Roosevelt: Roosevelt had a very large impact on our country and made many decisions that made our country what is it today. I would love to talk to him and I'm sure he has many wise words to share.

Maya Angelou: Angelou is a very inspirational and wise woman with many quotes that have inspired me. She is someone I would love to talk to and hear stories from.

Favorites:

Food: Italian. Chicken Parmesan and Fettuccini Alfredo

Book: I can’t choose; I’ve found so many amazing books throughout my education.

Movie: Deepwater Horizon has to be one of my favorites. It is a very powerful movie and explains a tragic event in history that many people are not aware of.

Town in Texas: College Station; I love the community and people
