What was your most meaningful service experience or extracurricular activity in college and why?
The most meaningful service experience was taking part in the breast cancer 5k Walk. For me, it was walking in remembrance of my aunt and grandmother, who both lost their battle to this terrible disease. I walked five miles to show my strength and endurance and to push to the finish line, just as my beloved ones did!
Who is someone you admire and why?
My mother will always be the person I admire. She is soft spoken and gentle, yet she has this unwavering faith and fearless soul that is filled with so much knowledge and wisdom.
