Model United Nations at SDSUThis program was very new (founded in the summer of 2015) when I decided to try it out and still trying to find its place, but regardless it opened my eyes to different cultures and nations worldwide and gave me a more worldly perspective.Fall 2014Added by Zachary
Men's CrewThe greatest takeaway from this experience was learning to discipline myself and to prepare for whatever goals I want to achieve, both short-term and long-term.Fall 2013 - Spring 2014Added by Zachary
Ski and SnowboardMy time on the snow team was both relaxing and fun, and gave me an opportunity to truly explore myself and find what I love to do and want to do for a career.Fall 2014 - Spring 2015Added by Zachary
Associated Students of SDSU
Sports Club Site SupervisorFebruary 2015 - PresentMy responsibility as a Site Supervisor is to watch over the different Sports Clubs' on-campus practices and ensure that they have everything they need (water, equipment, facilities access, etc.) and follow all A.S. guidelines. Another primary responsibility of mine is to provide first-aid to any individuals who are injured during practice.

City of Manteca
Head Lifeguard/Swim InstructorMay 2011 - PresentSince May of 2011, I have spent my summers working for the City of Manteca Parks and Recreation Department as one of their lifeguards and swim instructors. Duties include providing a safe atmosphere at the public pool, providing first aid to injured patrons, and teaching students (typically age 5-11) how to properly swim. When I was promoted to the head lifeguard position, my responsibilities became more focused on supervising my fellow lifeguards and dealing with unhappy customers, though in any emergency I am still responsible for providing first-aid and emergency care.
