“I am a first generation college student who learned to navigate resources and opportunities in undergrad and my first year of medical school. I am a traditional medical student who entered Long SOM immediately after my graduating semester at UT Dallas. I love to advocate for the importance of intersectionality in healthcare due to helping my immigrant parents navigate the American medical system, and spending time abroad at a hospital in Cuenca, Spain and learning about different modalities of global healthcare. I am looking forward to helping students who share the same interest in medicine and help them navigate the process of applying to medical school.”
