Erika M.

I am a risk taker because I go for the best possible outcomes instead of the safest."

The pride I feel from my Salvadorian heritage means a lot because it has taught me about the values of living. It is part of who I am and a part of my principles in life. My heritage has taught me the value of humility, respecting our elders, and giving back to our community when we have more than we need. My basic life principle is simple: to always be happy for just living. Happiness in life is having a family that loves you and supports you in everything you do.
