Pronouns: She/her

Why did you join the MYC?

Like many, I have always wanted to leave a mark on the world. In pursuit of that mission, I view MYC as an extension of my commitment to lifelong learning — for it would equip me with the skills, and chance to collaborate with inspiring youth. After residing in Multnomah County all my life, I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to contribute to a catalyst for change among our wonderful community.

What is your self-care routine?

SKIN CARE. Spent a good amount of time doing lots of research and compiling a regimen for my skin. Occasionally, I help others come up with their own routines on social media. It's simple, but gives me a dose of happiness each time.

What is your dream job?

I aspire to be a Serial Entrepreneur among PDX’s emerging Silicon Forest. Growing up in Portland, surrounded by socially-impactful corporate values, greatly influenced this pursuit. The city is a catalyst of innovation, individuality and sustainability — what’s more to love?
