As a student, I have participated in peer mediation since my 7th grade year. I maintain a 3.6 GPA average, am very active in school through debate, drama, NFL, Campus Life(school youth group) student council. I have created a peer mediation team at my high school. Outside of school, I have been working for a local attorney/mediator since my freshman year. During that year, I also worked with the San Antonio Bar Association. As my sophomore year rolled around, I worked with SPIDR by contributing articles to their youth initiative letter. I am also a published writer in the Express News, have done volunteer work for my communtiy, focusing on getting peer mediation started in the San Antonio area. This summer, I worked with a Dallas peer mediation firm as a student trainer.
