The goal is to be a publisher with a focus on molecular biology and herbology. I also plan to play volleyball next year at the collegiate level. I am a member of National Honor Society, Unified Sports for athletes with disabilities, key club member, President of Natural Helpers, and running Student Government Candidate.
