Community Service: For the past three years I have been a part of the MTH food drive with ASB. During the food drive I spent a lot of time standing outside of grocery stores accepting donations and counting the donations. My sophomore year, my class won the school competition for bringing in the most donations! As a part of Key Club I've also participated in numerous toiletry drives. 

Significant School Project: Last year for my ASB passion project I really wanted to make students more well known at MTHS who may not be as involved with school, but still have a unique story to tell. My team and I came up with the idea to post a picture and a story of a different student each week on Sunday on the MTH Instagram page. We called this "Story Time Sunday". We captured many people's ethnic backgrounds and familial traditions. It was a big success and I hope to continue it this next year! 

Current Employment: Aerie at the Alderwood Mall 

Educational Goals: I want to major in political science and continue on to law school. 

Career Goals: I want to either be a lawyer or a public policy maker.
