Words to live by

“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land amongst the stars.”

Community Involvement

Gallegos is a member of the National Honor Society, a community service club at school. Last year, as the Junior Representative, Gallegos worked with the Bonfils Blood Center to organize two blood drives.

Why is Community Involvement important?

“Too many important issues usually go unnoticed or under-publicized. Being actively involved in the community helps us all set aside differences and work together to find solutions to problems that we would’ve otherwise not have known existed.”

If I could improve the world I would…

I would revolutionize modern medicine and treat diseases in underdeveloped countries.
