change the world by fighting corruption and crime
As a child I always wanted to be an agent for the FBI. I went to college and double majored in finance and operations supply chain for one purpose, to achieve my dream. I want to change my country for the better, I want to fight corruption in our government and help people feel safe from dangerous criminals. I am driven to conquer these obstacles.

I Want to be a voice for the voiceless.
Throughout my life I have had the opportunity to give back to the community in a multitude of ways. I currently serve as a mentor to inner-city students seeking their associate degrees. Obtaining adequate legal services can be challenging for many. When I graduate I want to continue to advocate and serve as a mentor for those in need.

assist children with autism & educate their family
I want to use Occupational Therapy as a way to help children who suffer from autism and make them feel accepted in a judgmental, harsh world. I want to teach their family members about the disability so they are more understanding of the child and feel more comfortable around him or her. I want the children to be accepted in society.

I WANT EVERYONE TO HAVE EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES
I come from a family of hardworking, driven immigrants who worked tirelessly to be able to provide me with the opportunities I have today. I hope to give back and help other immigrants and low income families to not only gain an education, but have the possibilities of going after their dreams and succeeding in whatever they choose to do.

HELP BETTER THE MENTAL HEALTH OF CANCER PATIENTS
When someone receives the news"Your results were positive. I'm sorry, you have cancer", they're bound to face many difficult emotions and obstacles. At least for me, I know I did. My goal is to help cancer patients through their journey just as my social worker did for me-by advocating and providing better evidence-based mental health intervention.

inspire the next generation to save wildlife

To help increase social equality via the law.
Social inequalities including suppression of voting, restrictions on expression, and unequal access to quality healthcare and education have become the status quo. Inequality is linked with economic, racial, and wealth disparities which are sustained by institutional prejudices. By pursuing Law I can effect change on the root cause of these issues.

I want to encourage positivity within healthcare.
I have spent what seems like an endless amount of time in a hospital, as a child and currently as a student. I have met hundreds of amazing people and have had a role in helping them through recovery when faced with traumatic injuries. Hospitals seem to be an inherently negative place; something which I now strive to change as a future nurse.

I want to bring more awareness to depression
I have struggled with major depression most of my life, feeling hopeless and that no one cared or could care. I don't want others to feel that. So many people feel ashamed of it, and I want to use art to inspire them. I want them to get the help I was never given, to make them feel like they can succeed. I want them to succeed, depression free.

provide mental health services through therapy
Growing up I had a disconnect to my emotional well-being. I did not understand how my environment can influence my behaviors. I am currently a mental health counselor and I work with students who have behavioral needs. Having been in similar situations as my student's keeps me motivated me. I want to become a therapist to serve those in need.
