Personal Statement

Coming from a family whose core value is caring for neighbors as family, irrespective of diverse natures, I have dedicated myself to helping others. I am involved in aspects of my community that bring forth remarkable results, striving to be a leader who works within groups to achieve goals that foster community growth. As I move through my education and personal life, I have become more understanding of the needs of diverse groups of people and continue to believe that expanding my presence grows my network and increases my ability to create change. As Vice president of the Student Senate and Diversity Leader for the Multicultural Student Center at Bristol, ensuring equality, diversity, and engagement is always the priority. Helping those requiring assistance has always been a passion since childhood, and I continue this drive by volunteering at our campus Mobile Food Market, and in my work with St. Vincent’s Services (a mental health center for young children). My personal belief is that healthy kids make healthy adults who make healthy communities. In the future I intend to work on projects that raise global awareness, that will influence equity and strengthen the bonds of diversity in our communities.
