My core values in life are to do the best that I can with being successful in life, helping out with my family, finding ways to give back to my community, and helping people who are ambitious work towards their goals. I am very much influenced by art in my work, and growing up in Los Angeles and loving LA street culture are big parts of my life as well.
Aside from my schoolwork, I also work as a freelance graphic design artist. I learned about these skills at my school, but have been reaching out for the past year and have been working with an organization called Workshop 2.0. I now have over half a dozen books that I have done layout work for, and even have my name in two of them.
In April of 2017, I got the chance to represent Workshop 2.0 at the Los Angeles Festival of Books, which take place at the USC campus. While there, I had the opportunity to help sell the books that I have been working on, sign copies of the books, and share about my experiences in life being on the Autism Spectrum.
