What are three words other people would describe you as?

Charming, Charismatic, Caring.

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about my community and the people that surround me.

What is the best advice you have received about leadership?

The best advice I have received is that leadership is not about the title or the position. It is about being able to account for every member of the group and to create unity and teamwork amongst the people you are leading. True leadership shows itself in the form of group unity.

What or who has motivated you during college?

I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a UCI student. I know there are people who are unable to attend due to financial or personal reasons and having the resources and ability to attend this institution motivates me everyday. I know college can be challenging and overwhelming, but I am so thankful for the opportunity to have these challenges.

What is an obstacle that you have you overcame as an undergraduate a UCI?

An obstacle I have learned to overcome is taking time for myself. There are always things to do, people to meet, and events to go to. It can be very overwhelming, but I have learned that its ok to not show up to everything and to take time for yourself and self-care without feeling guilty about it.

How do you deal with failure?

Rather than allowing these failures to define me, I have learned to used them as learning experiences. Growth comes from failure.

What is your life motto?

Trust the process.

What is something that you have learned in college hat you would like to share the other students at UCI?

You never really know who you’ll meet or what opportunities you will find. Take advantage of this time and really explore. Figure out your likes and dislikes, and enjoy your time in college, it goes by fast.
