Among my special achievements and awards: I’m a graduate of Building Leaders for the Susquehanna Valley. Last year, I was inducted into National Honor Society and National Spanish Honor Society.

Why I was selected as a Young American: I’m very dedicated to both my academics and the various clubs and activities I participate in. I’m always striving to better myself, not just as a student, but as a member of the community. I do my best to help everyone around me.
What you should know about me: Over the years I’ve come to realize how truly lucky we are in America. We have running water, electricity and schools for our children; other countries don’t have near the opportunities we are given. Because of this, I try my best to be thankful for everything I have.
