I am a first-generation high school graduate and college student. Being the oldest of three brothers, I have always felt responsible for setting a good example for my brothers, showing them that they too can be successful and advance academically and just in life in general.

I started to become more involved when I began at Hartnell College, joining STEM programs/clubs like MESA(Math Engineering Science Achievement) and Physics Club, and doing internships that were STEM-related as well as building true connections with other classmates studying similar things. I transferred from Hartnell College to UC Davis for the Fall quarter of 2020.
