Personal Statement

Golf is my #1 passion, not just on the course, but off the course as well. As one of the few Latina high school golfers in Northern California, I was motivated to help diversify this sport I love so much.

Therefore, in addition to playing on my varsity high school team since my freshman year and playing competitively outside of my high school, I started my own non-profit and got accepted as a board and council member for two competitive and nationally-known organizations: USGA-LPGA Girls Golf e-Leader Board of Directors and Youth on Course Leadership Council. Here I work with other leaders in different states to develop and implement activities to diversify golf.

Outside of these boards and councils, I also work with the Diversity and Inclusion Chairman of the Northern California PGA to help diversity golf and I started Latinx Golf, an organization that combines STEM and golf activities for Latinx youth. With Latinx Golf, I work with Golf Pros and golf courses to provide youth with golf and STEM opportunities. I started Latinx Golf over a year ago as a result of the work I do as the Director of the Valdes Math Institute Tutoring Program, where I am responsible for all aspects of the program including curriculum, tutor and youth recruitment, communications (including with the Board), training, research, leadership and golf lessons for 24 tutors and 90+ 1st-10th grade students almost every Saturday at my high school since spring 2018. 

Academically, my record is strong. My current high school GPA is 4.33. I also attended community college and completed College Chemistry with an “A” grade.

I am known for being a team member who goes out of the way to make sure all team players are being included and feeling relaxed by using humor an encouraging and friendly personality. In addition, I am also a very coachable player with an ability to easily take direction and implement immediately.

I am excited about the potential of my competitive golf game this year because previous challenges are now a thing of the past. My golf scores do not reflect my current and future abilities due to two major reasons: First, I didn’t play golf regularly until my freshman year, which is considerably “late” in California where almost all youth golfers start playing competitively in 4th grade or earlier. Second, I had 2 years of a “set back” due to serious knee issues after my first freshman semester because I grew 4 inches in one year. I officially stopped growing this spring and the pain is absent allowing me to return to golf on a regular basis. I am also quite fortunate to have one of the best golf coaches in the nation. With his regular coaching, I anticipate cutting my scores to the low 80’s by my senior year.

My college and career goals are to continue playing competitive golf, major and work in a STEM field and continue to contribute to the growth of golf, particularly for underrepresented populations.
