“Our national myths often exaggerate the role of the individual heroes and understate the importance of collective effort.”

These words are from social scientist Robert Putnam.; but they are also words I try to live by. As we strive to make a difference in our communities and the individuals that live there, we must remember those along the way that allowed us to get here.
As a graduate of UT Arlington, an AmeriCorps Alum, a young professional, and a lover of Mexican cuisine, I seek value in every experience, not only for myself but for those around me.

If I seem a bit too opinionated about something, I promise it always comes from a place of compassion and understanding, especially when discussing education, housing, and equity.
