About Me

I am a first generation American. I am currently a senior at Belleville West Township High School and a sophomore at Southwestern Illinois College. Upon graduation, I am currently aiming to major in economics and continue schooling for a degree in corporate law. I currently spend my time in activities such as cross-country, a leader in debate, and student union. I applied for CEO to gain real world experience in the business world and learn about how a variety of businesses chooses to operate. 


I value responsibility above all else as I believe responsibility encompasses many other values. It is my responsibility to respect others, persevere, and be honest with others and myself. I also strive for success. My definition of success is created from my life experience living as a first generation American. Success is attained when you yourself are constantly growing and striving to become the best version of yourself. I believe success is when you are able to enjoy your job, and provide for not only your family but also serve your community. Success is achieved when you become at ease with your life and are able to take risks and learn and grow from the success or failure of your actions.
