Biggest hurdle you’ve overcome?

Growing up in a single-parent household means that I had to mature at a very young age. It means holding a lot of responsibilities. This includes taking care of my younger siblings, helping out at home, the rigorous coursework at school, extracurricular activities, and having a part-time job. However, the obstacles that come with these responsibilities haven’t hindered me from keeping my grades up and coming through for my family and friends.

What are your plans for the future?

After college I plan on obtaining a position at a nonprofit back in my native city of Dallas, Texas.
