What first got you interested in your field of choice?
I always wanted to pursue a career in the healthcare field and potentially work in the hospital. Therefore, I had set my goals on being a scientist or doctor. I really enjoy biochemistry, especially the notion of different processes that help our body function and how it can be affected. So, I decided to pursue pharmacy so that I may better understand how our body’s processes respond to drugs, how drugs can help or harm our bodies, and use that knowledge to help those in need, in a clinical setting.
What type of obstacles have you had to overcome on the road to getting your education?
The obstacles I had to overcome are all academics related. In undergrad, I failed a few times, so that meant my plan to graduate on time was delayed. Therefore, I had to work harder to keep with my classes and seek help when I needed it.
How did you know that KGI was the right school for you?
I knew KGI was the right school for me since I came for my School of Pharmacy interview. I really enjoyed the interaction I had with the faculty as well as the other students that were there. I could see myself actively pursuing my program here, especially with the team-based curriculum.
Why did you want to become an Admissions Ambassador?
I wanted to become an Admissions Ambassador in order to utilize my skills and strengths towards becoming an effective leader. But also, to help other students that are looking for advice and a path towards higher education, because I was once a student looking for help when it came to searching for prospective schools and I would have wanted some advice and guidance along the way.
What is one fun and interesting fact about you?
I was a YMCA Lifeguard for a year.
