Hometown: Buena Park, CA

Major/minor: Political Science major, Art minor

Campus activities, involvement, or other interests: AOII, Model UN, InterVarsity, Diversity Mentor. Interests  in photography and international development.

Why I chose to do this program: I wanted to be in the midst of a very unique city like Chicago with many opportunities and that was sure to teach many lessons in diversity and social policy.  I also especially loved ACM's workshops and felt they would be essential to an internship experience.

What I'm most excited about: I'm excited to have Chicago rub off on me.  I'm excited to learn what I couldn't have by sitting inside a classroom!

Anything else?  I know this is going to change my life – what I take from here is going to redirect my trajectory.   That's crazy scary but crazy great.  :)
