Majoring in Political Science, Minoring in Nonprofit Studies
Seton Hall University, Class of 2022
From North Tustin, CA
While currently focusing on my undergraduate degree in Political Science/Pre-Law with a minor in Nonprofit Studies and Catholic Studies, I hope to attend law school and pursue a career in law and politics. I am currently on track to graduate a year early (Spring 2021). I am goal-driven and determined, as shown through my background in the legal and political field. I possess an uncompromising work ethic, time management, organization, and prioritization.
