Since my school days, sports and extracurricular activities are a vital part of my life. I have participated in various zonal, state and national level competitions since I was 7 years old and have won a lot of prizes and scholarships for the same.

I think about traveling to Peru and volunteering at an Hogar and Hospital as a Freshmen, Becoming Co-President of the Women’s ministry for ODU’s Catholic Campus Ministry, and to working hard and receiving good grades in all my classes.
