When you find something you absolutely love doing, you do anything to make it work. Personally, that passion is aviation. I’m currently attending Utah Valley University as a sophomore in the aviation science program. I was born in Texas and grew up in a military and very patriotic family, moving numerous times. I’ve also visited several places in the U.S., Africa and Europe.
My life-long goal is to fly for the Air Force after college, and then fly commercially if the opportunity presents itself. There is nothing like flying a plane. It gives you a sense of accomplishment, responsibility and absolute freedom. Other passions of mine include playing the stock market, snowboarding, longboarding, soccer, fitness, traveling and video editing.
Life is meant to be lived and I’m a firm believer in staying positive and doing whatever you want to do in life as long as it makes you happy. You always have to try to stay happy, motivated and moving forward. And always remember to take time out of your day to appreciate people and opportunities in your life, such as being part of the top 10 finalists for a college scholarship.
