About Me

About Me

I am a third year undergrad student at the University of Houston. I love Houston but Galveston will always be home for me. God, my family and my education are the most important aspects of my life. Helping others and human biology are topics I’ve been interested in ever since I can remember, healthcare is my pathway. I hope to apply to medical schools this application cycle and wish luck to everyone doing the same. Life is too short to put off doing what you love, go for it!
