About Me

I am a senior at Althoff Catholic High School. I became immediately interested in CEO after I heard about the class of 2020’s great experiences from this class. I also applied for CEO because I was interested in the opportunity of learning more about the business world. I thought that the class would help me learn about what I wanted to do with regard to a career path. 

I am a very involved student-athlete as I run cross country (captain), play basketball (captain), and run track (captain). I also played select basketball, and run AAU track for the East Saint Louis Railers. My activities in school include being a member of the National Honor Society, Student Council, huddle leader of Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Student Ambassadors, ACE Leader, Crusader Cru, and I was a member of Big Brothers Big Sisters before the program was dissolved in schools.  I am a member of the Metro East Fellowship of Christian Athletes Student Board as well. Outside of school, I have volunteered as a hostess at various East Saint Louis Martin Luther King Jr. Programs, NAACP banquets, I volunteered at the Jackie Joyner Kersee Center 2019 summer camp, the Delta Child Development Center, and I was a member of the East Saint Louis Life More Abundantly clean team for several years. I have also been a member of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated GEMS mentorship program throughout all four years of high school and usher at my church. This past summer, I worked my first job at Smoothie King.

I am a very determined, passionate person that is looking to grow and be the best version of myself in every way that I possibly can. I enjoy reading, cooking, spending time with family and friends, playing video games, and relaxing. After graduating high school, I am looking forward to attending a four-year university to pursue a degree in something that combines business and computer science, and I plan on running track collegiately and after college.
