Upon college graduation, I plan to begin work as a biomedical engineer. Although a bachelor’s degree is the entry level requirement to work in this field, I am determined to obtain my master’s degree and ultimately a Ph.D. My career vision is to one day be able to provide alternative solutions to untreatable diseases, amputations and illnesses.
FAVORITE MEMORY FROM HIGH SCHOOL
Attending the UCA Cheerleading Nationals in Orlando, Florida during my sophomore year. I'll never forget the ecstatic feeling of being surrounded by my teammates as we placed top 10 in the nation.
THE TEACHER WHO MADE A DIFFERENCE
My Spanish teacher, Ms. Franco. Her bright personality and presence never failed to uplift me and my experience in her classroom has intrigued me to learn more about various cultures.
