01 About me

I am currently a Senior at Frisco High School. This is my second year in the Independent Study and Mentorship program. For my topic of study, I chose Entrepreneurship.

I believe that in order to be successful in life, one needs experience. At the age of 13, I created my own fully-functional business through the Young Entrepreneur's Academy of Frisco. Through that experience, I learned the requirements for starting a business as well as the time and effort it takes in order to run one. 

In the future, I want to be accepted into a top ranked university and pursue a career in the hospitality industry. I want to continue running the business I create in ISM for the remainder of my life. Also, I hope to build upon my knowledge and work towards improving aspects of my every day life.

02 Mission statement

During the course of my Independent Study and Mentorship program, I plan to acquire information from knowledgeable professionals about Entrepreneurship. Through a multitude of interviews, I will have the opportunity to strengthen my communication and application skills. Combined with the guidance of my mentor, I will create my own opportunity book (game plan). By creating an opportunity book, I will complete the groundwork for my future career and have information/strategies for the differing paths I could take. 

03 Experience

As of now, I am an intern for the construction of a four-hotel lifestyle complex with a 650-space parking garage.

I spent my summers and weekends working in various departments for limited and full-service hotels involving roles in front desk, housekeeping, food and beverage, sales and maintenance. I also inspected other hotels for operational issues and opportunities, later creating a presentation to show the company leaders.

Operations Intern for Hospitality Promos
I obtained leads and executed orders from art design to production for various markets and promotional products. By the end of my time there, I had increased revenue for the company by $30,000 through networking, selling promotional products and marketing while attending trade shows.

Founder and Chief Executive Officer

Through ISM, I started another company with my best friend. We created a phone case company which revolutionized the way phone cases looked and functioned. I learned how to start a company from scratch and bring it to the prototype/production stage.

Young Entrepreneurs Academy


In 8th grade, I was accepted in a program called the Young Entrepreneurs Academy. I was one of twenty-four students accepted and created a fully-functional business by the end of the program. I learned from experienced professionals and furthered my passion for business.

Chief Financial Officer

I was the CFO of Data Air which is a business I created with two other partners in the Young Entrepreneurs Academy. I presented my company to an investor panel and raised $850 in start up capital for the business. Data Air was a company that developed a sensor to detect the harmful volatile organic compounds in the air and offer suggestions on how to clear one's air.
