Interesting personal fact

I can eat Ramen for a whole year, but I am also aware that is terribly dangerous. I was born in Guadalajara, Mexico. I studied abroad in Germany during high school and therefore my year goal is to learn how to pronounce this word: Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz and yes it is a word! It means beef labeling regulation & delegation of supervision law. I am probably never going to use it, but is so long!

Favorite quote

My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that 'achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others, and that's nice, too, but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success.' Helen Hayes -US actress (1900 - 1993)

In college you find so many opportunities to get involved. While it seems that being busy and doing everything is what you should do, remember to take the time to just be. Don’t lose the U in busy.
