12th Grade at Point High School

Class of 2019

Why did you join the YAC? 

I joined the UCSD YAC not to get in the way of things, but rather to create a way. Create a way to end health inequities and positively impact my community. The most amazing thing is that “the change” is led by youth like myself, who have a strong desire and feel passionate about doing something that has not been accomplished.

How has your participation in the YAC helped you develop as an individual? 

I joined the YAC in August 2018, and the past few months with this group have been eye-opening and amazing. As an individual, I have been able to enhance and develop communication, public speaking, and leadership skills. I put them in when doing group activities and when brainstorming for potential research/interview questions.

What’s your dream job?

My dream job is to be part of the World Health Organization.

What’s a quote that motivates you?

“Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.” – Steve Jobs
