I have had the good fortune of always excelling academically, due in part to instilled strategic time management, developed test-taking skills, and a strong scholastic foundation. My favorite subject in high school was always some form of mathematics, and ranged from algebra to calculus to statistics. Though I ultimately decided to pursue psychology at the university level at Texas A&M, numbers have remained a passion of mine. Music education was also a key element in my tutelage. I was very active in community theater growing up, participating mostly in musicals, and logged 10 years of piano lessons by high school graduation. A broken arm in the 4th grade encouraged an intense study of musical theory, where I instantly became fascinated by and grew to love the Circle of Fifths. My passion for the French language was admittedly late to develop; though I had 3 years of study on the subject in high school, it was not until the experience of being a foreign exchange student in Switzerland that I truly mastered its beauty.
After graduating at the high school level with honors, I began my college career at Blinn, and ultimately transferred to Texas A&M, where I was also able to graduate with honors. Today, I continue my education as funds allow as a graduate student in the counseling program at Sam Houston State University. Their convenient night and online classes allow me to remain in the College Station area and commute as necessary. My future goals are to become a licensed counselor specializing in at-risk youth.
