Save the environment
Architecture and construction have major environmental impacts, and there is a clear need to adjust the ways in which we design and build the world around us to have a smaller carbon footprint. I want to find innovative ways to satisfy our needs and wants as humans without compromising our planet.

Learn to make prosthetics for animals
I have loved animals forever. There are many animals who are born with deformities, or are injured and have a low quality of life. These animals deserve help to achieve a high quality of life like any other animal.

I Want to Defeat Cancer
At 18, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer while a member of the U.S. Army. I overcame cancer and I want to help the world defeat cancer. I’m determined to figure out how to prevent cancer and ways to annihilate cancer if it occurs in you or your loved ones. I’m studying to become an oncology specialist where I will help destroy cancer!

Graduate as a first generation college student
As the first in my generation (combining siblings as well as my cousins) to attend college, I'm setting the example for them and my much younger siblings to achieve their dreams, whether they want to go to college or not. It's been a struggle, but I'm trying my best to make myself an example and for them to believe they can achieve anything, too!

Give a voice to the voiceless
For the past two summers I have dedicated 90 hours every week to working with adults with intellectual disability and mental illness. This population is one of the most marginalized and requires people to be educated more on the subject. I hope to be able to provide this education through integrating this population into the community.

I want to help and inform the world about animals.
I have been in many instances of where I had to give away or put down a pet due to being ill or behaviorally bad. I want to change that and give every animal a chance at life. I believe in holistic medicine which helps the body produce more of the nutrients it needs than to simply add it to the diet. Thank you for supporting me!
