Person(s) — other than parent(s) — who were biggest influence on you and why: My great-grandmother has been a huge inspiration throughout my entire life. After the passing of her mother at a young age, she chose to leave school to become one of the primary caretakers of her eight younger siblings. With determination and hard work later in her life, she was able to pursue a career as a restaurant manager at a successful business. She has shown me that with dedication and perseverance, you can achieve any dreams and goals you have in life.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years: In 10 years, I see myself having acquired my master of science in nursing degree and practicing at Akron Children’s Hospital as a pediatric nurse practitioner.

“If I were president, I would ...” lower taxes for the middle class, provide job opportunities, improve the educational and health care systems, and help those with poverty and homelessness by providing services.

Favorite high school memory: Being elected captain of the Ellet High School varsity soccer team for my junior and senior year.
