University of Miami Blood Drive
A photo of me and Sargeant Addy Villanueva of the University of Miami Police Department. She and I partnered with OneBlood.org to organize an on campus blood drive to collect plasma donations to benefit Covid patients and platelets to help the child of one of her fellow officers who was suffering from cancer. I was proud to have been part of this effort to help my community.
Thespian Honor Society
In high school, I enjoyed acting and was in several productions including Beauty & the Beast, The 39 Steps and a skit from The Book of Mormon. Each role let me flex my creative muscle while playing such different characters ranging from a ruthless henchman to a goofy villager.
Miami Dade Animal Shelter
While in high school I volunteered at the animal shelter. It's a great activity for dog and cat lovers alike. You get to play with the dogs and introduce them to potential adoptive parents. The blind Pomeranian was my favorite and I was thrilled that she was adopted. It's a great feeling when the shelter animals find their forever home.
Hispanic National Bar Foundation Summer Law Institute
I spent two weeks in Washington D.C. with fellow Hispanic students from all over the U.S. learning about the legal field from prominent Hispanic lawyers, government officials and judges. The program culminated in a mock trial presided by a Federal District Court Judge and my team was the winner!
