I am from one of the biggest cities in the world, Mexico City. This made it difficult for me to get used to the idea that I am not just one more number, but my family always had contrary beliefs. I was taught that anybody can make a difference, no matter how big or small, so Ialways had the goal of helping as many people as I could. In 2017, Mexico had a life threatening earthquake. I witnessed how many lives were lost due to not only the earthquake itself, but due to the poor structure of the buildings. That’s when I realized I could make a difference as an architect. Before architecture, I wanted to be a professional tennis player. Tennis has helped me develop in ways I could have never imagined, but it is also a passion that I now realize can help me achieve my academic goals. That is, by helping me get into a good school where I can continue to develop my game while carrying out my career of choice. I always strive to have a good academic, athletic, and social profile, embodying hard work on each and every aspect of my life. But, I have flaws, and I am always open for constructive criticism and change. I like to work on myself and I strongly believe that I can be a better person everyday, making me a perfect candidate for college on and off the court.
