I'm fluent in Spanish and am currently learning American Sign Language. I am extroverted, enthusiastic, and Read more I really believe in empowering kids to be their best, most confident selves while emphasizing safety and reason. I plan on attending UT next year to obtain my Master's in Social Work and will hopefully work as CPS case manager or in some capacity with kids in the foster care system.
