    What are your goals and aspirations?
    I hope to one day implement accessible technology to better the lives of others and the environment. The new generation of innovations is changing rapidly and I hope to be a part of the positive impact it makes around the world. I plan on attending the University of Texas at Austin or possibly Stanford University to double major in Mathematics and Computer Engineering. I also hope to obtain and intern with the Bill and Miranda Gates Foundation to learn how to develop technology that will help in the transport of necessities to third-world countries.

    How was your Early College experience?
    My experience has been very family-oriented. There is always someone around that truly cares about you as a person, student, athlete, and musician. PSJA has a wonderful, loving, supportive environment that promotes individual growth and achievement.

    What would you say to your PSJA Family?
    Thank you for always supporting students, including me. There is no way that I could have had the success I did without the wonderful people at PSJA, my mentors and teachers I like to call family.

    What would be your message for underclassmen?
    My advice would be to take every class seriously. I know some of you don't like math or reading. However, your GPA ranking starts from the first test, quiz, and even homework assignment as early as middle school, but definitely from the moment you enter the doors of high school freshman year. We are fortunate to have many great teachers, so make sure to communicate with them and gain as much knowledge as possible.
