Since I was young, I always dreamed of having a career that would center on helping others. This dream is fulfilled in my aspiration to become a medical doctor and being able to aid anyone who is sick or in pain.
FAVORITE MEMORY FROM HIGH SCHOOL
Defeating Pulaski Academy in football at the state championship. It was thrilling to watch our team knock off the reigning champs in decisive fashion.
THE TEACHER WHO MADE A DIFFERENCE
My 10th grade Biblical worldview teacher, Mrs. Jones, who has always been there to support me. She is a phenomenal example of Christ's love because she gives it freely and unconditionally, which inspires me to live in such a way as a response.
