After graduating high school, I hope to attend a 4-year university to major in marketing and minor in advertising. In addition, to my degree, I hope to continue my family’s philanthropy endeavor with the charity golf event that we run. My true passion was discovered this year when I started the “Day of Thanks”, which provides free dental care to Veterans and First responders on Veterans Day and Memorial Day. I feel it is my mission to help those, who are constantly helping others.
