YEP Finance Coordinator | Biology 2020
WHY DID YOU BECOME A PART OF SCOPE?
I had scoped (haha) other organizations at UCLA before, but I found that I dreaded going to their meetings, and they seemed like kind of a burden. I wished to be a part of a program that I would actually enjoy while making a meaningful impact on the community, and SCOPE was perfect! I love working with kids, and it allowed me to become a positive influence and friend in children who may have not otherwise realized their personal and academic potentials due to varying personal struggles.
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO LEAD YOUR SPECIFIC PROGRAM?
The Youth Empowerment Program is the first organization at UCLA in which I felt I truly belonged, and I wanted to be a part of the group that makes it possible for others to feel the inclusivity that I felt. I had the best experience in YEP during my first year, and I hope that I can help create an environment in the organization that fosters a passion in each of its members. YEP puts a pep in my step. ;)
I can twist my hand all the way around... like the way an owl can twist its head all the way around... but with my hand.
FUTURE GOALS AND ASPIRATIONS
I plan to go to med school to become a pediatrician.
