At the end of my second year, I founded a student organization (Care to Cure at Berkeley) dedicated to supporting and spreading awareness of pediatric cancer patients and families. Starting this community-oriented and service-based group allowed me to express my passion for helping others in a unique way that directly affects those I see around me. Through simple experiences like Care to Cure, I often feel that anything is possible at Cal, whether it be research, volunteering, or career.
As a Molecular Environmental Biology (MEB) major with a minor in Forestry and Natural Resources from CNR, I feel that my choice of studies is 'my own.' With six areas of concentration in MEB and the plethora of biology classes offered at Cal to choose from, I know that my undergraduate career path is dynamic, even for my pre-medical track and the rest of my life and professional vocation.
