I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico and am a sophomore at Albuquerque Academy. I am passionate about the quality of education in my community. It’s my goal, and the focus of multiple projects, to provide a strong, useful education to all children, like the one I’ve been so fortunate to have. At school, I am the captain of our mock trial program; it’s a great experience speaking, acting and learning about the law.

My project will provide tutors to teach ESL classes to new immigrants in my community, focusing on essential reading, writing and math curriculum.
