What activities are you involved with on campus? SSS, TRIO, Student Ambassador, RA, Phi Theta Kapa, We Care Club, STEMania leader. I'm in all these things because I believe it makes me a better person, and it also helps me meet new people on our campus.
What are your post-WC plans? My plan is to become an RN and start working in a hospital.
What are your favorite things to do when you are not at school or studying? I love to play soccer in my spare time, and I also like to go out and see my parents when I can to tell them how school is going.
What is your dream job? My dream is to become a general doctor for Weatherford or the DFW area. It’s been my dream since I was a little boy.
Who has been your greatest hero? My greatest hero is my mom. She has always been the one that supported me through everything I have done from 7th grade trying out football to trying to get in the medical field. I would remember she would wake up super early just to take me to my football practice in middle school. She will always remind me that she and my father came to give us a better life that they couldn't have. She doesn't want us to go through what they had to go through.
What is your favorite movie? Marvel movies and Star Wars movies. They are all good movies that go well together.
What has been your favorite course, so far, at WC? My favorite class that I had so far is Mr. Castillo’s history class. He knows how to keep the class interesting and focus on the topic we talk about.
How important was affordability when choosing to attend WC? I have been here for two years going on my third and so far I haven't paid a dime for college because I found scholarships.
How has Weatherford College changed your life? Weatherford College changed my life because it gave me new opportunities to explore new places that I never thought I could.
