I am currently attending Colorado Christian University in pursuit of my Bachelor's degree in Nonprofit Management. I am a wife, mother, and adult student in CCU's College of Adult and Graduate Studies (CAGS) program - determined to finish my degree in Honor Society! I have always had a heart for volunteerism and nonprofit, working and supporting our local Filipino-American Service Team (FAST); Honor Flight Kern County; Relay for Life; and our family's foundation, The David Marcus Thumbs Up Scholarship Foundation (TDMTUSF). My family and I started TDMTUSF last year in memorial of my late Uncle David who sadly succumbed to cancer after a 7-year battle. David was a special needs man who has inspired us to continue his legacy of supporting children with special needs, encouraging student-athletes, and helping our community. My goal is to use my degree in Nonprofit Management to continue improving TDMTUSF and helping special needs students across the country.
