I am currently majoring in aeronautical science, a decision I made when I was 15 years old. I would fly kites all day with the desire to fly someday myself, without the use of anything, just like the birds do. My favorite animal has always been the eagle and how effortlessly it soars.
I was born in San Jose, Ca, but my parents decided to raise me in Acapulco de Juarez, Guerrero Mexico. I lived in Mexico for 8 years and decided to move back to San Jose because it was the best place to study aviation and pursue my career. I am bilingual — English and Spanish.
While growing up, I was super curious, but a little more so than the other kids around me; I would ask about everything and follow up with “Why?” and How?” My goal was to learn as much information as I could. I learned to swim when I was 6 years old, had my first job at 8 years old, learned to drive a stick shift when I was 12 years old, and worked at a maintenance shop at 13 years old. Curiosity made me chase many things, but it never changed my vision to become a pilot.
I believe there are many things I still need to learn because we never stop learning, but I feel confident, curious, and driven to keep pursuing my goals. I want to share my aviation knowledge with other people in return for the help I’ve received. I am committed to helping others achieve their goals as I accomplished mine.
