Meet the Leaders
As an aspiring PA student, I started looking for possible volunteer opportunities that could push me out of my comfort zone to help someone else. I’m not sure how I landed on the Chicktime site but after reading through the statement of purpose, I fell in love with this organization’s mission. Though our team was not able to find a child based organization to serve, I still take pride in taking a leadership role to help the homeless of my community.
My strongest passion is to help those who need it most. Though there are many career fields that could fulfill this passion, I grew a strong interest in the medical field. In the long run, I strive to work as a health care professional, serving those underserved communities I once grew up in myself.
I love all things artsy! Though I am not the best, it gives me peace and comfort to stretch my creative “legs” and space out. Painting, drawing, singing, music, anything I feel can bring a sort of enlightenment in a fun way, I love!
My hobbies are primary going to the movies, hanging with my friends, listening to music, and enjoying some family time (Game Night!!).
I would like to inspire children and women to pursue STEM fields no matter how difficult it seems to be. Serving with Chicktime allows me to achieve goals that seemed difficult to do alone. I’m also here to promote a vision of eternal love and support with each other. I strive for collaboration and not competition.
My passions and gifts
I bake French macrons and still would like to get a license to sell one day. I also like to organize my stuff in my free time. My ideal living lifestyle is similar to being a minimalist.
I love everything that has to do with beauty and self care.. I like to empower women with my past experiences in order to help them overcome their struggles and feel beautiful on the inside. I believe that by sharing my experiences as a woman is a skill that involves communication and listening to others in order to encourage them. I love to do hair and makeup. I believe once we are heal on the inside we can glow from within and use hairstyles and makeup to enhance ourselves.
I feel that Chicktime, the women involved, and the vision of this organization embody who I am as a person, and, as a woman, how I would like others to view me. I see myself in those that uphold the values of this organization and I hope to one day be someone that others look up to as well.
I’ve come to love medicine and the health care field. One day, I will be an advocate and an ally for women and children in underserved communities dealing with chronic illnesses. I value communication, words of affirmation, and connection when speaking with others and I try to to convey that in all conversations. I hope to be able use these skills in my future career to pursue my passion in medicine.
