Person(s) — other than parent(s) — who were biggest influence on you and why/how: In the middle of my senior soccer season, we lost our head coach; as captain, I had to lead my team in this difficult time. A new coach stepped in, and I had no idea what a huge influence she would have on me. Her passion and perseverance taught me a lot on and off the field. We turned what seemed to be the downfall of our team into the best season of our careers.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years: I hope to be finishing my residency as a clinical pharmacist and ready to enter the workforce as a pharmacist who is passionate about inspiring others to take care of themselves mentally, physically and spiritually.

Briefly describe your favorite high school memory: My last soccer season, we had many hardships and had to come together as a team to make it through. Being on the bench with an injury, I got to watch my teammates play with confidence and passion for the sport we all love.
