“I wanted to become a doctor since I was a little kid because I really liked science and medicine seemed like a very helpful field for society. Coming from a low socioeconomic household I understood the need for healthcare for those without any means of getting help. As a first-generation American it was difficult finding out how to navigate undergrad to become a good applicant for medical school and I was glad to have friends who could mentor me about how to handle my time in undergrad. I see this as paying back people who have helped me through my undergrad and I look forward to providing any type of guidance that could help someone realize their goals :)”
