I have recently moved to the Valley from Southern California but have been coming here most of my life and am sixth generation to the Valley. This past year I graduated from Upland High School with Honors and am studying Criminal Justice at Western Nevada Community College and planning on transferring to University of Nevada, Reno in the fall of 2018. I have previous experience in creating informative presentations and presenting them due to my involvement in the National History Day competition for four years.
