Hello! My name is Ralph Dela Cruz. I was born in the Philippines and moved to my current home in Des Plaines, IL when I was eight. Elmhurst is a twenty-five minute drive from Des Plaines via I-294. I’m a freshman who intends to major in nursing and considers a minor in psychology. My career goal is to become a nurse practitioner. Some of my responsibilities on campus include being a member of the Presidential Leadership Academy (PLA), Student Government Association (SGA) and Asian Club of Elmhurst (ACE). My hobbies include playing basketball, dancing and graphic designing.
