Year of Graduation:
I graduated summa cum laude from UCLA with a 3.96 GPA. I became a member of UCLA's Eta Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. While at UCLA, I completed the College Honors Program.
In high school, I tutored students for several years who were part of a non-profit called Santa Barbara School of Squash. I also helped tutor students at my high school for several years. While in college, I spent two quarters in UCLA's Bruin Partners, where we work to tackle the education gap for students in underserved communities thorough one-on-one academic tutoring and personal mentorship. In the wake of the worldwide spread of the coronavirus, I started an organization that aims to connect college students, who offer free virtual tutoring sessions, with students K-12 who need additional academic support during the transition to virtual learning and during the stresses of the time. In terms of personal experience with learning barriers, I have dyslexia. When I was younger, I spent time learning new skills in order to manage, and so I can relate to the challenges dyslexia brings to the learning process.
Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience
While at UCLA, I participated in many extracurriculars where I was able to give back to the local and global community. I was in UCLA Flying Samaritans for 2 years. We run/attend monthly clinics in an under-resourced community of Tijuana in order to provide quality medical care. I was a member of UCLA's Happy Feet Clinic for 2 years. We provide podiatric care to the homeless population of Los Angeles. For 3 years, I was a member of Bruins for Ronald McDonald House Charities. We cook meals for and fundraise to support families and children affected by pediatric cancer. As a member of UCLA's Kappa Alpha Theta for 4 years, we run an annual philanthropy event to fundraise for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). I also volunteered by time in the Geriatric unit of UCLA's Santa Monica Hospital for 1 year.
