I was born in California, but grew up in Apex, North Carolina. By the eighth grade I moved to Holly Springs and in my senior year of high school I moved to Clayton. My mom was a single mother of 3 daughters until recently when she found my stepfather and now we have a new little sister. My mom was illegal until 2 years ago when she finally got her residency after almost 20 years of waiting. My goal is to become a neurology researcher or surgeon.
