High School: Skyline Center High School
College/University: University of Texas at Austin

Goals: "Attending college allows me to be one step closer to reaching my ultimate goal of becoming a [Civil Defense] attorney... I desire to be a role model for DISD students. I want to show that success stories do come out of our district despite how DISD is often portrayed in the media. I would like to create a mentoring program that allows sophomores to partner with other successful DISD alumni. This program will provide a structure for guiding a student through the college preparation process. Some people have called my goals simple dreams, but Carl Sandburg said it best, "Nothing happens unless we dream first"."
