About Me

I’m normally rather quiet. I have a hard time just sitting down and talking to someone; I find it easier to talk whenever I’m engaging in some physical activity while I’m talking. I enjoy watching birds and sea creature, and taking walks around the general area I happen to be in.

Campus and Community Involvement

On campus, I haven’t partaken yet in any volunteer or athletic activities. At home, I volunteer at the local Sea Center. I’m also an Eagle Scout from Boy Scout Troop 328 in Lake Jackson, TX.

Awards and Honors

I received Excellence in Effort in Orchestra. Other than the Tier One Scholarship, I have no other scholarships or awards since attending UH. I graduated in the top 10% of my class, at class rank 54.

Study Abroad

I am not currently taking any languages. As for studying abroad, I honestly haven’t put much thought into it. Maybe someday, I will, but as of now I don’t have any plans about studying abroad.

Research

I haven’t discovered or realized a type of research that truly interests me as of now.

Future Endeavors

My intentions after graduating are to go to medical school to become a doctor. I’m not completely sure what kind I want to be, though I’m leaning towards pediatrician at the moment.
