Personal Summary

I would like to consider myself hardworking, determined to achieve success, and a team player. I think it is very important to always work to enhance my social skills in order to develop stronger relationships.

I enjoy reading and writing; I wrote for my school's online newspaper, The Saga, where I learned how to express opinions and utilize my right to freedom of the press. 

I am highly interested in the study of psychology; I would like to attend UC Irvine, UC Santa Cruz, or Sonoma State University for their numerous opportunities in that field. I am interested in becoming a Child Psychologist for those suffering with anxiety or depression, in particular. I have always felt a feeling of self-fulfillment when I help others and would like to do that for the rest of my life. I am interested in learning more about these psychological problems among adolescents and steps taken towards reducing their harmful effects.
