I plan to further my education and attend a 4-year college in the fall of 2024 majoring in Political Science and Psychology. My career goal is to work in Public Policy/ the Social Service Field where I can help minorities and individuals facing adversity. I want to study abroad and continue traveling the world and experiencing new cultures and ways of life. Volunteer work is crucial to me! I plan to continue volunteering, participating, and leading community-centered service projects.
