I am a US Peace Corps Volunteer working in the Philippines under Vigan City's Social and Welfare Development Office. My primary assignment involves behavior management and tutorials with children with special needs. I have a Bachelor's in Political Science from UC Irvine and will pursue law school after my service ends. My involvement with Special Olympics started with my service here in Vigan as a coach and organizing this event, but i think it's safe to say this involvement has sealed my lifelong commitment to Special Olympics to some sort of capacity, whether it be as a coach, volunteer, or cheerleader. This organization is something special and I am proud to have been a part of it and excited to champion the movement further.
