Share how you came to doing what you do.

As of right now, I hope to attend medical school so I’m studying hard here for
another two years! I was definitely influenced by my mom and oldest sister,
who are both in the medical field.

Share a quote either from someone or somewhere that inspires your originality and not care what anyone thinks.

“It’s just destiny –she thought – it’s just the way things work out in this damn
world. If cowardice is all that’s been holding me back there wont be any more
holding back. So we’ll just let things take their course and never be sorry.” – F.
Scott Fitzgerald, Benediction. I found this quote in high school after I asked a few
friends for book/author recommendations. Someone brought up reading
something by Fitzgerald, and I came across the Benediction. As a teenager, it
made me feel like I could do anything, and it reminded me to not stress too much
about things because sometimes life just happens. To this day, I still randomly
think about it, and I generally feel the same way – it’s changed the way I go about
my day-to- day life.

What motivates you on the daily?

My goals, even the small ones, motivate me every day! Also daily calls from my
mom!!

What is a negative experience that has turned into a positive experience?

This past summer, I took Organic Chemistry II and that was probably the hardest
I have ever worked for a class. I didn’t pass, and it being my first class that I
needed to take again I basically thought the world was over. But I think it’s
changed the way I see my plans for school. It made me remind myself that my
school plans are at my own pace, and that it’s ok to fail and try again, as long as
you do your best.

What is your favorite pieces from Consttant and how would you style it?

The  Remastered Vintage Button Up 2 is my favorite piece! I would wear it with black jeans, gold jewelery and my high top black van.

What is your favorite band that inspires you and how does it make you feel?

Tame Impala is probably my favorite band, Kevin Parker is a genius!! I can say
that listening to their album Currents was life changing! It maybe helped that the
lyrics were relatable, and if not, what he says is very real. Yes I’m Changing is
probably my favorite song, but The Less I Know The Better is a close second.
Everyone should check em out and thank me later (;

Share what inspires you to follow your dream.

My older sisters inspire me everyday to follow my dreams! They’re my number
one fans, and constantly remind me that I am capable of doing anything I want to
do. They are the greatest, coolest people I know.

What are your dreams and how do you want to achieve it?

One dream I have is to travel to as many places as possible, and I hope to achieve
that by becoming successful in my career to be able to do so. I think traveling is
the greatest thing anyone can ever do!

What do you want to see more of in the world?

More love in this world is always needed!!!
