I’ve always loved movies ever since I was a child. Although a lot of things have changed, I still decided to follow my childhood dream of working in the movies. I remember the exact moment I knew I wanted to be a film major; it was right after I came out of the movie Princess and the Frog with my dad. I want to use my majors to help me land a job in screen-writing or cinematography. My hobbies include sketching, painting, and guitar playing.

Understanding how and why people become who they are has always been an interest of mine. Through the science of Psychology I hope to apply this passion to my professional career, focusing on the research of culture, and its impact on the way we think, feel, and behave. In my personal life I am extremely curious and spend most of time searching for new people and experiences to broaden my horizons in as many areas as possible, including music, literature, athletics, and many more.

My career aspiration is to become the next Ron Clark and make effective and positive impacts for my students and their families.
