While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were

My parents, my friends from home, and my friends I have made during my time at SMC. Although some were closer than others and some were out of reach, I always had the support of my loved ones wherever I went. Distance didn't mean anything. I always knew they were rooting for me and that is all I needed to get to where I am today.

My favorite SMC memory is

Anything that had to do with APASA. The people I looked up to in APASA set the grounds for a loving and inclusive community in a place where the majority of the people did not look or think like me. My absolute favorite memories involve our yearly SoCal trip to Friendship games.

I'm looking forward to most

Student loan forgiveness because COIVD-19 and being home with my family and my dog.
Before I do anything I ask myself, ‘Would an idiot do that?’ And if the answer is yes, I do not do that thing.
