I am mentally determined and adamant about accomplishing goals. Beingthe first in my family to attend college has taught me to fight for what Iwant. My family is bold and inseparable, which is where my gregariousand assertive personality comes from. The extremely positive nature Iexude continues to surprise my peers and elders. Running keeps my mindand body balanced. It feeds my need for competition and encourages meto challenge my limits. This sport lead me to experiencing life as a divisionone athlete and to finding an internship that shares my passion forrunning. At this internship, I was able to help plan and market for a keyfirst birthday bash fundraiser to benefit those experiencing homelessness.
