Growing up in Texas I've learned to appreciate the bigger things in life. The big hearts, celebrations, state pride, but most importantly the surplus amount of food. I've lived in San Antonio since I was born and wouldn't want to grow up anywhere else. Throughout my 17 years of life I've had my fair share of ups and downs but luckily I had the best role models there could be, my parents. They have taught me to always chase my dreams and be what I want to be. My ultimate goal in present time would be to go to UTSA and become a pediatric dentist. I truly believe your smile is your first and most important impression you have for someone. Although this is going to take some time, I believe it will pay off in the end.
