I was born and raised in Santa Ana. I graduated from Cal State Fullerton in 2015, earning my BA in History. Upon graduating, I knew that I wanted to teach and be part of a school community. I worked as a swim instructor and substitute teacher for a couple of years and decided that my next step was to get my teaching credential and Masters degree. In 2019 I received my Masters and History teaching credential from UCI with the hope of becoming a Social Studies teacher in the near future and continue making a positive impact on students.
