Other Academic Information
At school I could tell that I am a student over the average with a 3.4 GPA, I love History, Geography, Economics, and Business, and I could say that in the first three I have been ranked as the best student of the school becoming the only student that has exonerated History and Geography completely in the first and second semester in Eleventh grade last year and Economics as well in this semester in Twelve Grade. I hope to be rated in the top 5 every where I go because I know that I can do it and for me there are no barriers that I could say will make me go back when I take a decision to do something.

About me

Since I was a little kid in my life I have had two passions: Sports and Politics, love that I developed threw my father who is a politician and was the person who introduced me to sports. As an individual I consider my self a leader, someone who always wants to reach the top no matter what adversities I have to face. I am a determined person that knows what I want, what to do and when it has to be done and when I don’t know something I just try to find the answer or work as a team if it is one, but always visualizing who has the control and without loosing it.

My first passion in life, like I just said before is sports, Baseball specifically, like every other Dominican kid my dream has always been to reach the majors and every day since I was five years old I have worked to get that goal achieved. I am a left-handed outfielder with a potent arm, great power hitter, and a runner that could be catalogue as the average one. Today in days I am practicing with my coach Geronimo Rombley in the Olympic Centre in my country, fixing every detail in my game that has to be fixed and trying to get a professional contract or a scholarship, that would be my first option in case that I could have both offers at the same time.

My second passion, the politics, is something in which I haven’t work that much, but a field in which I have been successful more than once at the short age I have. I started developing this passion in 2003 participating at Model UN of the North Region, which was celebrated in Santiago, Dominican Republic, from their on my life changed as I wouldn’t think before enrolling in this types of events. I worked hard to get a prize, thing that I always will thank two of my high school professor, Aida Herrera and Paola Peña for giving me the chance to go their even though I didn’t have the experience required. In the same year I participated in Model UN of the Americas in which I gain the necessary experience to give my tutors the opportunity of watching me gain a prize in the next Model UN that was helded again in Santiago in 2004 and in which I won the Best Delegation prize representing China at the UNESCO, this prize gave me the opportunity to become in this same year Ambassador of the Dominican youth at United Nations in the Seventh Annual Student Conference in which the theme of the Conference was “HIV/Aids: From prevention to action”, then in 2005 I went to the International Conference of the Americas(CILA 2005) which was helded in Bavaro and in which I won again the Best Delegation prize this time representing Egypt at the World Tourism Organization (OMT), and then I went again to which was going to be my last Model UN that was helded in the year 2006 at Bavaro, this was the International Conference of the Americas(CILA 2006) and in which I won Distinguished Delegation prize representing Japan at the IMF and again I won the privilege to represent my country in my second term as Ambassador of the Dominican youth at United Nations this time at the Ninth Annual Student Conference in which the Theme was “Migration and Development: Challenges for the Human Right”.

At school I could tell that I am a student over the average with a 3.4 GPA, I love History, Geography, Economics, and Business, and I could say that in the first three I have been ranked as the best student of the school becoming the only student that has exonerated History and Geography completely in the first and second semester in Eleventh grade last year and Economics as well in this semester in Twelve Grade.

I hope to be rated in the top 5 every where I go because I know that I can do it and for me there are no barriers that I could say will make me go back when I take a decision to do something.
