Born and raised in Sacramento, California, I decided to make the brave decision to move away from home and attend college at San Diego State University. I am currently pursuing a degree in Social Work and have been involved in many student organizations that helped me stay involved and connected. I found a passion for social work when I graduated high school and started my freshman year of college. I really enjoyed much of the course work I was taking and inspired me to be more engaged in my community and work toward social justice. I enjoy spending time with family, going to the beach, listening to my favorite artist Shawn Mendes, playing sand volleyball and softball, and trying new foods.
I am honored to be a part of the Mending Matters team, and I intend to continue my education after completing my undergraduate studies and enrolling in graduate school to pursue a Master’s degree in Social Work.
