I moved to Richmond in 2009, when I was seven years old. Growing up, I loved to build toys, and I would always cut apart boxes to make my own model airplanes and cars. It has been a hobby of mine that I still carry to this day, and I am very proud of my designs since they represent my ability to create an invention from something that would have otherwise been thrown away. Sometimes, they would fall apart if I do not build them well; so making these novelties have taught me a lot about being comprehensive and meticulous in everything I do. These traits have translated well into my activities in both my community and school. When I am volunteering, guests would often describe me as someone who is attentive to their needs and takes care of the minutiae that turns their experience into an exceptional one. Additionally, my friends who often work alongside me in group projects and community events discover that I am a person that seeks perfection in my work and commits to a task until I am satisfied. Today, I am a person that can work both in teams and independently. My experiences in the neighborhood and at home have shaped me into a person who plans each task all the way through but makes changes accordingly. I believe that my efforts and commitment should be shown through my work in the community and the results I produce.
