I grew up in an environment where I used to read a lot. I developed an interest in motivational material. I spent time reading about Martin Luther King and his perspective on service humanity. I discovered that human benevolence and the urge to help the needy are the traits that make humanity unique. I wanted to exhibit these traits throughout my life and future career. I developed the urge to help other people through serving in the health sector. This would enable me to exploit my altruistic desire and potential.
I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. Thereafter, I worked as an Advocate for Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Victims, where I gained valuable work experience. Working with the Sexual Assault Response Team made me learn to give emotional support, material resources, how to conduct forensic exams and victim advocacy service follow ups. I learnt to be offer counseling, motivation and give crisis advice to victims of domestic violence. I also gained vast knowledge in professional fields such as criminal prosecution, law enforcement, forensic medicine and social services. The job made me know how to integrate, negotiate and organize system experiences for domestic violence survivors.

I am also outgoing and willing to learn to become a dependable professional. I have the desire to pursue a Master of Public Health degree at California State University Northridge.
