I am a Presidential Scholar sophomore majoring in Economics/Mathematics and minoring in Applied Analytics. My hometown is Yorba Linda of Orange County in Southern California. On-campus, I am the director of the Academic Committee of the Trojans Scholars Society, helping to plan academic and professional opportunities for USC’s merit scholars. For Glimpse from the Globe, a publication focused on international affairs, I serve as outreach chair. I also volunteer for an organization, Eye to Eye, at a local LA charter school, mentoring and doing arts and crafts activities with children that have learning disabilities. I love to listen to a variety of music, write in my journal, read, hang out with friends, and explore new places!
