Majoring in Public Health and Spanish at Johns Hopkins University, inspiring to integrate these two fields to make healthcare more accessible, affordable, and comprehensive for all. I believe that a country that purports liberty and the pursuit of happiness needs to have an efficient and fair healthcare system in order to fulfill this promise. I have a passion for working with children, and I aspire to help seal up the cracks in the system that underprivileged youth often fall into. Children are the foundation of our society, and I enjoy investing time into improving in their well-being, self-image, and confidence. I love theater, ice skating, movies, and obscure science fiction novels. I'm excited to explore ways to improve the lives of the people around me and make the world a brighter place!
