Since fifth grade, helping the community has been a significant part of my life. My nonprofit organization, Peace Love Smile, tries to spread peace in people's lives, share love throughout the community, and create a smile on someone's face through stuffed animals, cooking, and kindness. My love for stuffed animals as a little girl and cooking skills as a teenager helped expand this nonprofit to act as an umbrella for four corresponding chapters: Peace Love Eat, Peace Love Comfort, Peace Love Kindness, and Peace Love Communiteens. I have been recognized in several publications such as The Miami Herald, Our City Pembroke Pines, and Our City News. I have also won several awards such as Semi-Finalist for the Prudential Spirit Award at school for both 2018 and 2019, Points of Light Award in 2019, and finalist for the Hands On Broward Youth Impact Award in 2018.
In addition to my community service, I love photography and website design. Both of these passions give me the freedom to be creative. Recently, I transformed both of these to businesses. I am now not only doing photography as a hobby, but also for events and family photoshoots! I recently launched my web design business even though I starting making this website and my online photography portfolio in 2017. My new website, which features more information on my photography and web design, is here.
At school, I participate in seven clubs such as Make-A-Wish, National Honors Society, National Art Honors Society, Photography Club and my own club, Communiteens. My leadership skills and dedication to service allows me to make an impact the community in a meaningful way.
