I am currently a student at West Texas A&M in Canyon, Texas. I am studying mechanical engineering with the hope to get a job in Amarillo, Texas. I grew up in a small town in New Mexico by the name of Portales. This town is where I was born and raised and it will always be home. I am also a member of the New Mexico National Guard. It was always my dream to be a soldier in the United States Army and that is exactly what I did. I joined the Guard because I wanted to go to school at a young age. I have also been a Christian my whole life and that defines a large part of me.
