I was born on December 13, 1996 at El Camino Hospital in Mountain View. My mom's name is Judy and my dad's name is Dan. I am the oldest in my family and I have a younger brother named Patrick who happens to be fifteen years old. Right now he is a sophomore at Valley Christian High School and he is on the robotics team. My parents have a lot of siblings so we have a really large extended family. I am the oldest of all of my twenty wonderful cousins and we spend a lot of time with each other during the holidays and throughout the summer. Every summer my family goes and visits my great aunt near Lake Shasta at her resort. All of us pile into the same cabin and spend a week together. I'm really lucky because all of my family lives really close to each other.
Before going to Archbishop Mitty High School I went to elementary school at St. Simons in Los Altos. I started at St. Simons in kindergarten and was there until I graduated from eighth grade. Most of my classmates went to Saint Francis High School so when I started at Mitty I didn't really know anyone. I am incredibly glad that I chose to go to Mitty over St. Francis because I have made life long friends and made lots of memories. I run cross country and distance track and I have been running since freshman year. My team is amazing and we always have so much fun even though running long distances is really tiring.
In my free time I volunteer at Walden West Outdoor School throughout the entire summer and on random days that I have off of school. Walden West is a summer camp that teaches kids about the environment and how to respect nature. I lead groups of five to twelve year olds on hikes and I also work down at the rock climbing and high ropes course.
In the future I would love to go to UC Santa Barbara or University of Washington for college next year. Right now think I want to be a doctor when I grow up!
