About (Summary)

High school senior. I'm striving to be a first-generation college student by next year and attend my dream school: UC Berkeley. For now, I'm savoring my last few months of youth and committing myself to my education, applying for scholarships, and making my family proud. After school, I'm either tutoring English learners or participating in Mock Trial. In my free time, I give online writing tips to underclassmen as an ex-president of my school's Creative Writing Club. I’m usually drawing, writing or expressing myself creatively by other means.
