I started my college career without a clear objective. In my youth once things became hard I stopped preforming and moved quickly on to another goal.

Throughout my lifetime, goals have always been a determining factor in the way I approach my day.

I’ve always had the dream of snorkeling the waters of Australia, or roaming the mountains of Nepal. I want to experience what this world has to offer in terms of exotic locations.
