My life revolves around all of the arts. Fashion, music, dance, poetry, drawing, anything that is colorful, creative, or unique is what I live for. Anything artistic that I see or hear instantly sparks an idea in my head and I’m instantly putting it to work. Currently I’m not in any community service projects but by the middle of next year I hope to be a major part/impact in any and every community events.
During high school, I was apart of the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps, where I worked my way up to second in command of my unit. Through the Sea Cadet Program, I participated in multiple volunteer events, ranging from placing wreaths and flags on fallen soldiers headstones, helping to set up the Veterans Olympics at the Veterans home in Boulder City, and marching in Veteran's Day parades. I also volunteered at my local hospital every Friday night. Towards the end of high school, I decided I wanted to do more for my community, so I started a GoFundMe campaign for homeless Veterans. I was able to raise nearly 3000 dollars which was used to feed 175 homeless Veterans a Thanksgiving Day meal. With the money, I was also able to provide 7 new mattresses and 500 dollars worth of Wal-Mart gift cards. I discovered my true passion lied in assisting our Veterans. So, I carried my passion for Veterans with me through my first year at UCLA. At the start of the year, I joined an organization called the Operation Mend Undergraduate Association, where I served on the Outreach Committee. Through the year, I partook in Quarterly food servings, visited with Veteran's that are in the Operation Mend program at the Ronald Reagan Hospital, and helped in the Veteran's Day parade. I also started volunteering every week with the Memory Care Unit at the CalVet of West Los Angeles. I plan on remaining active in both of these activities through my years at UCLA.
I am an easily amused but difficult to annoy kinda person, so I can't get ticked too quickly! I credit these qualities of mine to the experience I've had working in healthcare and my exposure to numerous types of people, old and young. Consequently, I am passionate about pursuing a career in medicine and inspiring others to living healthier lives; so, I currently volunteer at St. Anthony's Medical Center on the Surgical Stepdown Nursing unit, as well as the Children's Hospital of St. Louis Family Resource Center, and the Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital. In addition, I am also employed by the Saint Louis University department of Psychology as a research assistant in the Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience of Aging Lab. Aside from my medically-related activities, I am driven to learn more about my heritage and family's culture; therefore, I try to commit some of my time to volunteering at the Hindu Temple of St. Louis, where I help in organizing various community service projects benefiting not only the temple but also the St. Louis community.

"Never Imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise." -Lewis Caroll, Alice in Wonderland If you can't tell, I really like books. Books, video games, School and my family (animal and human) are my life. My favorite book generes are science fiction and fiction. My favorite kinds of movies are horror, and those that are made from books. School comes before friends, reading and video games, but family will always come first.
