What first got you interested in your field of choice?
The BSUITE internship introduced me to the biotech field. Biotech wasn’t covered much at UCR and the focus was centered on Pre-Med. As an alternate to medical school I was amazed to find an amazing career choice that had a direct impact on medicine.
What type of obstacles have you had to overcome on the road to getting your education?
The transition from high school to college was very difficult since I had no freedom and thus was negatively impacted by too much free time.
How did you know that KGI was the right school for you?
KGI is a small school that caters to students. Professors always have an open-door policy and are happy to discuss anything. The labs available to conduct experiments is extremely valuable because they are comparable to industry operation. The curriculum is the most important thing because having background knowledge immediately puts you ahead of the curve.
Why did you want to become an Admissions Ambassador?
KGI offers a unique education primarily focused on training students to succeed in their future careers. As a Bioprocessing student I know that we learn the background to industry standard operations while also practicing presentations and dressing for success.
What is one fun and interesting fact about you?
I was the DJ for most KGI events. Nothing was more fun than playing music for all my classmates!
