What first got you interested in your field of choice?
I’ve always been interested in the field of medicine, even as a kid. I was always so fascinated with the science behind how the human body operates and how medical intervention benefits it. I first gained exposure to the healthcare field through my mother, who was a pharmacy technician and went back to school to become a nurse. After having researched a lot about the field, I soon became immensely passionate with the idea of saving lives one day. From there, my passion continued to grow and soon became my motivation.
What type of obstacles have you had to overcome on the road to getting your education?
I think one of the biggest obstacles for me is, and has been, doubting myself. I don’t consider myself to be the smartest, but I definitely am very motivated and dedicated to get to where I want to be in the end. Having self-doubt about being able to do just that has been a challenge, but that’s what makes the end-goal that much more worthwhile.
How did you know that KGI was the right school for you?
I first heard about KGI through a friend, and hearing her praise about the school drew me towards researching more about it. The many different programs that this institution has to offer immediately caught my attention, many of which I had never heard of before. Visiting the campus further interested me and soon I became anxious to begin this new journey. The atmosphere that the students and faculty create here consists of so much support and kindness. We are all very close-knit, striving individually and together, which was very eye-opening for me since this was something I never experienced during my undergrad.
Why did you want to become an Admissions Ambassador?
Personally, I feel as though there is not enough accessible information out there about KGI. For people who are looking into furthering their education, KGI is a wonderful place to consider. I would love to reach out and educate as many people as I can about this amazing institution and share its tremendous qualities that not many other institutions currently offer.
What is one fun and interesting fact about you?
