What is your dream job?
My dream job is to be a dermatologist.
How does that compare to what you wanted to be when you were young?
Ever since I was little, I always wanted to be a doctor like many members of my family. When I was a baby my parents got me a toy doctor set and my favorite tool was the reflex hammer.
What is your favorite thing about being a part of the Pioneers family?
My favorite thing about being a part of the Pioneer family is the inclusivity of everyone. Everyone is so warm and welcoming, and always ready to give help when asked! I always have someone to help me with schoolwork if I get stuck on a difficult topic!
Where is your favorite place in the world?
My home and hometown are my favorite places in the entire world. There is nowhere I would rather be than where I am right now!
What show are you bingeing these days?
Every Friday after my last class and before vespers, I watch an episode of Deadliest Catch. It has been one of my all-time favorite shows since I was 4.
What is something you’re passionate about?
I am very passionate about fishing, hiking, and running. I really enjoy outdoor activities so anything pertaining to heading into nature is game.
Recommend a place to go in the Bay Area on a weekend
A great place to go to in the Bay Area on the weekend is Stinson beach. The sand is soft, there’s good parking, fun running trails, skid boarding and great food. My favorite food spot is definitely the Siren Canteen and I would highly recommend going there. It is a 5-minute walk from the beach and has the best food.
