What first got you interested in your field of choice?
What first got me interested in my field of choice, physician, is growing up in the world of sports. My father manages and promotes professional boxing fighters, so growing up, I was able to go to different events and see physicians behind the scenes work on bruised and cut up fighters. I found it incredible that someone can help fix
and heal such significant injuries.
What type of obstacles have you had to overcome on the road to getting your education?
An obstacles I had to overcome on the road to getting my education is understanding that everyone’s road to success looks different from mine. I always thought that in order to be a successful physician, one needed to start medical school immediately after undergrad. I thought that by not starting right away, medical schools would not be interested in me and that I was behind the curve. I had overcome this notion in my mind that there are many paths to success, and they all vary from one another.
How did you know that KGI was the right school for you?
I knew KGI was the right school more me when I stepped foot on campus and met other aspiring students who are on a similar path as mine. Each student inspires and pushes you to accomplish you goal. I felt that at KGI it was no longer a competition but a collaborative effort to succeed.
Why did you want to become an Admissions Ambassador?
I wanted to become an Admission Ambassador because I feel that my experiences and background are valuable for students who are interested in pursuing a medical degree. As someone who struggled in undergrad and was lost for a period of time about what to do, I hope I can answer questions to students that are in a similar situation I was in.
What is one fun and interesting fact about you?
One fun and interesting fact about me is I attended Miley Cyrus’ (Hannah Montana’s) Sweet 16.
