I will go to Austin Community College to earn my Associate’s degree, then I’ll transfer to University of Texas at Austin to earn my Bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering.

Are you currently employed or were you employed in the past? If so, what do you like about it?
I work at TaMolly’s Mexican Kitchen and used to work at Tuscan Slice in Waxahachie. I enjoy my job as a server.

Are you involved in sports or other extracurricular activities at school?
I am a member of the National Honor Society, Men’s Leadership Club, Delta Phi Beta Chi Science Club. I am also involved with cross-country, and I ran track during my freshman year.

What is one of your favorite memories from your time with PCHAS? Who will you miss the most when you leave school?
I will miss the PCHAS office staff and my Home Parents. My favorite memory is going to Schlitterbahn, a water park, with my Home Parents.

What else is interesting about you that you think we should know? What are some of your favorite things in this world?
I plan to be a successful millionaire one day!  I also want to write a book about my life which will hopefully inspire kids and adults. I want them to know that they can be successful no matter how difficult their lives are or have been. This is something I learned at PCHAS.
