About Me

I grew up in Cypress, Texas and went to Cypress Ranch High School for all four years of high school. In my first two years most of my time was spent playing baseball for the school. During my Junior and Senior years, however, I focused on my studies and volunteer work in the community to build my resume. I love sports, making friends, and am looking forward to my future years at the University of Houston to broaden my social and educational horizons. I live life  motivated to make myself a better person each and every day. 

Campus and Community Involvement

I love to volunteer for my church and local fire-department in my spare time. I also enjoy playing a variety of sports, including baseball/softball, basketball, football, and golf. I hope that next semester I can be involved in intermural activities around campus to make more friends.

Awards and Honors

I was ranked 5th in my class of 623 and graduated Summa Cum Laude at Cypress Ranch High School. I was a UIL scholar and an AP scholar in high school.

Study Abroad

During middle school and high school, I took 5 years of Spanish. In my first four years of the language, I don’t think I got a good grasp of the language. In the fifth year, however, I had an amazing teacher and an extremely small and closely knit community of people that really helped me comprehend the language. I would love to go to Spain or another European country to study abroad after learning to really respect other cultures and languages.


Since my current major is Biomedical engineering I would love to find a way to allow technology to increase the life expectancy of people around the world. After my degree I am going to use my degree to get involved in the medical community to find a way to save lives. In the future I hope to research about important technology like the pacemaker or prosthetic devices that I can improve on and make the world a safer place for everyone.

Future Endeavors

I hope to attend graduate school with the money that I saved before my Tier One Scholarship. The scholarship will help me expand my studies and build my resume for the future. Medical school could be also an option depending on my grades in the next couple of years.
