I’m thrilled you’re here—because we’re a lot alike, you and me. We’re both trying to make a life we love out of what we do. I am 22 years old and recently graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in History and Political Science. I graduated from Our Lady of the Lake University. While a student there, I was actively involved in many organizations. One of them being my sorority: Kappa Delta Chi, INC. The reason I point out KDCHI is because through my sisterhood I've worked with different communities. Every year we pick a different non-profit organization for our long term service. Since becoming a member we have partnered with Girls Inc., The Ronald McDonald House and Hispanas Unidas. Within these organizations I would work with the children and adults. I enjoy being a companion because I love helping others. I belong to a big family and there is always help needed around the house and before I would spend my free time caring for my grandmothers. I enjoy most activities and have a real passion for helping people and their development. It is essential in my opinion to not just be a companion, however to engage i. Their activities to not make them feel they are inferior.
Since I am the oldest in my family, it has always been my responsibility to take care of my grandmothers.
