Sasha’s dream is to become a nurse, or work in the hospital and give back to her community. Although she has barely begun her journey, she tries her best to do her best so she can add her grain of sand to the beach that is her beautiful community. She currently volunteers at a the only no-charge clinic in the Coachella Valley, Coachella Valley Volunteers in Medicine, or (CVVIM).

This past academic year, Sasha completed over two hundred hours of community service within her college campus, as well as out in her community. When Sasha is not occupied elsewhere, she loves to spend time with her family. Sasha believes that time is the new currency, so she can’t afford to spend it on anything other than family, fun, and community. She believes that you get what you make of it, so it’s best to make everything worthwhile! She is super excited to see what the future holds for her, and is grateful for everyone who has helped her along the way.
