What are your life/career plans after Ohlone College?
Work at a job where I am able to help people, especially from undeserved communities.

Why are you interested in mental health and wellness?
I am interested in mental health and wellness because I feel like it is very undervalued and not talked about enough. People always talk about the importance of physical health, but mental health is not as visible and I want to change that. I think overall health and wellness begins internally, and that is why is so important to take care of our mental health as much as our physical health.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?
In ten years, I see myself content and proud of the work that I do. I also see myself chilling on a beach somewhere, reading a really really good book.

What kind do you like to do in your free time?
I enjoy hiking, Netflixing, reading, drinking boba, and going to the beach.

What’s your favorite genre of music?
The Hamilton Soundtrack, Folk-pop-indie (I promise this actually exist!), OPM , 90s R&B.

What’s your favorite movie snack?
Chocolate covered almonds, ice cubes.
