Interests

Distinguished Young Women

  • Distinguished Young Women, or DYW, is an organization founded in Mobile, Alabama, in 1958. It consists of a showcase of fitness, talent, self expression, and academics and awards scholarships to five outstanding participants. The goal of DYW is to allow young women to discover their best selves and develop their full potential. I participated in the showcase in March of 2015.

Travel

  • My family enjoys traveling, and we have visited many destinations within the United States and outside. I have family in Mexico, and we try to get out to them as much as possible. We have taken several summer vacations to spots such as Hawaii, Alaska, New York, Cancun, and the Bahamas. My favorite element of our travels has been the different cultures I have been so fortunate to be immersed in.

Friends and Family

  • I am very passionate about my friends and family. I really enjoy spending time out with friends, such as going to the zoo or hiking, and going on family outings, such as paddle boarding at the bay.
