I am a person who wants to solve questions. I am very curious about things and how they work. Not only that, but I want to improve the things that are wrong with our world today. There are many problems such as our water issues and the obesity factor in America but as a Biologist or Chemist I can improve the way we think and look at things and even save lives.

Our world today is facing a global crisis. Kids throughout the world are suffering physically from no shelter to starvation. Teens throughout the world are suffering emotionally from depression, loneliness, and stress.
This has become a worldwide epidemic of kids and teens having to deal with all sorts of problems that are more apparent now then ever before. To make a change in the world, I want to help kids deal with these problems. In order to do this, I need to be understanding of whatever situation anyone might be going through while also learning to be patient at all times. I want to cooperate with other people to help me in helping kids and teens but also be independent in the choices I believe are right. It is important for me to be observant of what is going on around me in order to help other kids deal with their problems.



I am creative, outgoing, and open minded. I enjoy most creative things such as doing hair, crafty things, and singing and anything active. I also love going camping with my family. My hobbies consist of singing, going to shows, being in the sun, babysitting and being with kids, helping people with advice and being active in any way. I want to place my artistic and creative lifestyle into a career such as a therapist, hairstylist and or teacher, Whether a singing teacher or just teaching little kids. I have different paths that I'm willing to go down and I will be happy with wherever I end up !

I am friendly, understanding, helpful, self-confident, and talkative. I personally love helping others whether it be teaching or talking about personal problems. For example I like to work in groups, helping people with problems, taking photographs, videos, and expressing myself creatively. My hobbies are helping others with personal concerns, religious activities, meeting new friends, going to parties, attending sporting events, playing team sports, and most importantly, caring for children. I want to apply my helpful, understanding, and outgoing skills into helping society of all ages and backgrounds with mental health by becoming a therapist or counselor.


Valencia High School

Due to the fact that I am deeply empathetic and understanding to people's pain and struggles, I would like to pursue a career in clinical and/or addiction therapy and psychology. All I want out of a career is to be able to make someone's life better and more stable. There are so may individuals out in the world that need help and aren't getting any, and I would like to be someone who could give them what they need in order to live their lives to the fullest extent. If the world had more stable people in it, there is no telling what could be accomplished, and for that reason I think it is not only fulfilling to be a professional counselor, but it is necessary to the future that there are more outlets for finding help.

The changes I want to see in the world are improvements to climate change, waste, and clean water. The changes i will do in order to help benefit the earth is recycle , reduce, reuse, and most importantly refuse. I will recycle plastic bottles and cardboard boxes that not only I use but also the ones my family uses. I will also refuse to use plastic bags in the supermarket and invest in reusable bags. Also what ever my family uses i will also try to reuse or make something new so I can reduce waste. All of this is important to me because I want this world to be the healthiest it can be for me and future generations.

Some of my many strengths are being an artistic and empathetic person when it comes to anything that has to do from my school to my personal life. I would like to implement the skills I have to do something useful for the world. I can encourage younger people to enhance their inner creativity, since studies have shown that the percentage of self-creativity and ability to problem solve have slowly decreased through time. I am a big believer in a photography, being able to capture a moment in time is one of the greatest things that someone could ever do even if it is a common experience now-a-days. Photography is something that can be kept forever and it gives you the opportunity to see how time has developed through one's lifetime. Traveling is another experience that in my opinion is a great way to feel as if you are actually able to meet the world face to face. Writing gives me the chance to express my emotions to the deepest point my persona can meet. My personal favorite would have to be art, art is photography, writing and traveling all in one. You are able to visualize anything you desire, express any emotions you feel and exhibit it to the world without any hesitation.

I like to help people and read a lot of scientific journals. I also like learning about new things that has to do with our body or anything related to science. A challenge that’s might have is probably figure out how everyone in the country can be able to have clean water since in some parts of the country, people don’t have clean water. I see myself as a helpful, and understanding person since I like helping people with their problems. One of my goals is to become a pediatrician because that way I’ll be doing what I like best which helping kids whenever they’re sick, and giving them treatments. I enjoy being able to meet new people, and learn new things. Photography is something that brings me happiness because of all the memories that each picture I take has. My favorite subjects at school are science, language arts, and child development.



I am creative, imaginative, and very observant. I often like drawing, playing video games, and reading good stories. I recall being capable of using a computer in depth, and exploring a variety of ideas. I hope that I am able to improve my abilities of using computers and drawing.
