Tell us a little about you(your background and how was it like)?
I’m Mexican-American with family based in Texas and the Bay Area. I grew up moving a lot. Both of my parents were in the Army and met in the Army. I was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and I now live in San Francisco, California.
What do you value most from your country?
I value that we have a lot more freedom when it comes to sharing our narrative and taking control of our education and personal dreams
Who influences you to go after your goals?
My mom, my abuelita, my little sister, and artists, like Maya Lin. Strong people who stick to what they believe in.
What advice can you give a teen about going through hardships?
It always gets better. Things truly do take time. Be grateful for the good.
If you and only three wish to change your family or the world’s life what would they be?
My first wish would be never having to worry about any money issues for anyone in my family. My second wish would probably be the freedoms to travel and learn so much about the world and different cultures. My third would just be being able to have some sort of creative platform.
Was there a time u helped others out?
There was a time I had a huge secret account with over 50K followers centered on mental health where I never revealed myself and only spoke with my first initial. There were people at my school following that who had no idea it was me. It was so helpful, but I ended up having my own problems and feeling drained. It was rewarding though. I made one of my best friends through it.
Are you happy in the position you are now in life?
I think i’m growing and i’m changing and i’ll just be getting happier and happier as time continues.
