Hello! A few of my interests/hobbies include traveling, photography/art, cosmetology, and martial arts (I'm a black belt in Taekwondo). After RVCC, I hope to transfer to a four-year university such as Princeton. I have a strong work ethic, moral compass, and strive for excellence. I always enjoy meeting new people and experiencing different environments. My ultimate goal in life is to live a fulfilling and stable life that I can be even more proud of. I'm happy to be where I am.

Raritan Valley is one of the few institutions that cares about its students. When I figured that out, the choice to join Student Government was obvious to me. My goals for the year might be too ambitious or idealistic, but I will try my best to ensure they happen.
