What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I am a first-degree black belt in Tae Kwando! An additional personal fact is that I am the first person in my family to graduate from a four-year institution with a bachelor’s degree. I hope to honor my family with everything that I do, and I must acknowledge the sacrifices they have made so that I may have a fulfilling life. It is not only my family that drives me forward, but also the millions of others of hard working families doing the same. I do not want my family’s sacrifices to be in vain or spent only by selfish living, but rather I want to be an extension of the work they began and give back to as many lives I can reach.
