Meet Me Video
I am a people person, energetic and passionate. I was once told by a friend that I have no off switch, and frankly, I've never needed one. Student. Tutor. Goalie. Trumpeter. These titles describe but do not define me. I will be a force for change here, there, and everywhere.
The titles have changed (intern, outreach coordinator, director of interns), but the hustle never stops. Being a part of this platform's rise from three hungry team members to a professional army spreading the gospel of equity and access continues to be all that I could've asked for and more.
Over the past year, I have had the opportunity to work on a couple of startups of my own design and work on several high-powered teams making noise in EdTech and other spaces. The connections I have made as well as what I've learned (mainly from my failures) have been nothing short of life-changing.
On my select-level club soccer team, I lead by example both on and off the field for 5 years. I now captain an intramural team at UT-Austin, and in both cases, I've achieved success in more terms than wins and losses, and treasure the myriad connections I've made and valuable lessons I've learned.
As crew leader of annual, week-long, church-led youth mission trips to impoverished areas here and abroad, I work to provide roofing, yard work, painting, tiling and construction services for poor or otherwise disabled residents. They have demonstrated incredible faith which continues to inspire me.
In high school, I wrote for Churchill’s award-winning newspaper, The Observer, as well as organized fundraisers and assisted in the management of revenue and expenses. I love to write, and feel the experience made me both more aware of the world around me and more connected to my vibrant community.
