Major Goals: I believe in serving others above myself and making a long-term impact through forward thinking growth mindset. I aim to work hard with a positive disposition wherever I am. I strive to never be afraid to fail; always willing to try and create something new.
Core Values: Respect, loyalty and perseverance. (Humor makes the list too.)
My Mottos: “I’ll find a way to make it work.” “You can find excuses or you can find opportunities.” “Service above self.”

My background in political science also has allowed me to contribute a unique perspective in reporting.
