What impact do you want to have on the world?

I hope to provide inspiration to other low income, high achieving students as an example that it is possible to get into a prestigious higher education institution.

Name a person you admire.

My mom. 

What is something you are proud of in your life so far?

I'm proud to have become a part of the LEDA community. LEDA (Leadership Enterprise for a Diverse America) is a program that helps low income, high-achieving high school students get into the nation's top colleges and universities. Without the help of this program, as well as the help from my cohort, I don't think I would have been able to get into the colleges that I applied to. I am proud to be a LEDA Scholar, and to have been able to get into Swarthmore. 

What was the most transformative class you have taken and/or what subjects do you want to explore deeply?

I really want to explore political science and economics because I was not really exposed to these subjects as in depth in high school, and I want to be able to understand what exactly happens in these social sciences.
