Personal Statement: 


My passions are helping others, traveling, and learning new things. It really all started once I transitioned into high school. I began to join many clubs and different organizations that encouraged me to break out of my shell. I was very shy growing up and always kept to myself. Being that person, I always wanted my voice to be heard but was to scared to really say or do anything about it, and now that I am on the other side, I want to help and encourage others to do the same. I have traveled to many different places inside and outside of the country, and doing that I have helped build schools and renovate houses for people in need. I love actually interacting and getting to know the people that I have helped because it is very humbling and teaches me to be grateful for everything that I have been blessed with. I intend to continue serving my fellow human beings and one day being able to start my own non-profit organization that will motivate others to take part in helping the world.
