My passion is anything bicycle related. I am a bike commuter and travel about 12 miles to and from work. I try as much to actively participate in all events that help promote the use of bicycles. I volunteer with Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, Amgen Tour of California, Bicycle Film Festival and Midnight Ridazz events. My interest include volunteering, music, photography and of course bicycles.
I have supervisory skills and experience in a guest services environment so I would able to use that to help me teach and coach about the uses of a bicycle. I am best known throughout my work, family and friends as a bike advocate and try my best to teach friends and family how to learn to ride a bicycle and simple bicycle repairs. I assist friends to be actively involved in events that help promote the use of bicycles and other recreational activities to be more physically active. I want to keep being part of this community that has done nothing but exposed to me to positive people and has me leading a healthier, happier life with a confident attitude. If chosen, I would be sharing my experience and knowledge to other women around my community.
I am very excited to be applying for this. As soon as I read about this scholarship program, I immediately knew this was a great way for me to try to give back more than what I’ve already gained as a bicyclist. I will still continue to try my best to be more of a positive inspiration and motivator.
