I want to lead the next generation of leaders
Leaders have a tremendous ability to cultivate the next generation. It might be strange to begin with something leaders shouldn't do, as opposed to something they should do. Very often, seasoned leaders can clearly recognize the leadership potential in certain individuals and are tempted to take it upon themselves to push them in that direction.

Help children in low socioeconomic environments
I grew up with nothing because my parents immigrated from two different countries. Through tough trials they prospered and supported me. We moved to an area which bordered higher income families and low income families. I saw the huge differences between the quality of life and it hurts to see smart children that don't have anything, not move up.

To change the world
What drives my goal is my mother. My mother is the strongest woman I know and I have learned to be strong in the face of hardship. She works everyday so my sisters and I have a college education.

To Live Comfortably & help others do the same.
As a musical theatre major, I understand the difficulty of having a steady income. However, I also realize that while this may be a struggle for me, many people have a hard time living comfortably due to extensive medical bills for illness, losing a job, and many other factors. I hope to use my career to better the lives of others in any way I can.
