Hometown: Diamond Bar, CA

Why HSH? Community, Diversity, Acceptance!

What causes or non-profits do you support and why? I support MHALA (Mental Health America Los Angeles) and the Los Angeles Arboretum.

What piece of advice would you give to a graduating sixth grader? Be you! Society wants you to always look outward to compare who you are to others. Trust that who you are is enough. Let your own individuality shine bright.
