What first got you interested in your field of choice?
I always loved health sciences, but I was never a fan of hospitals. By working in biotech I can still help patients, and I feel I can probably impact way more people than if I was a doctor or surgeon.
What type of obstacles have you had to overcome on the road to getting your education?
Limited financial resources. Luckily in my home country there are universities that are 100% public, but I had to fight for a spot in one of them. Education is the greatest investment, but it isn’t cheap unfortunately.
How did you know that KGI was the right school for you?
KGI culture. Faculty here is accessible which reminds me of my undergrad institution. I guess that made me feel more at home and less insecure about any eventual difficulty. At KGI you can count on your advisors and professors, they will always be there for you if you need help.
Why did you want to become an Admissions Ambassador?
I want to give back to KGI. This school is opening so many doors to me and I am so grateful. Also, I want to spread the word to students that are looking for the right graduate program.
What is one fun and interesting fact about you?
When I started college, I almost gave up on science to pursue a career in the arts. I’m a singer and always loved being surrounded by art, still do. I’m glad I didn’t give up and I feel I’m on the right path when it comes to my career.
