HOBBIES

One of my favorite interests outside of school is watching or playing sports, I support all the sports teams in Washington D.C., and also enjoy playing soccer as a hobby on the weekends.

WHY CONSTRUCTION?

I have always had an interest in construction, seeing a project transition from just an idea, into a full-on design, and then finally into a finished product has always enamored me. I remember when I was little, my mother would drive me down to a construction site where a new Kroger was being built, and I would watch the workers and machines for hours.

CAREER GOAL

Currently, I am unsure of my long term career goals, but I do know I am interested in owning my own business one day.
