I am originally from Greenville, MI where I attended Greenville Senior High School. In high school I had a large interest in biology and the sciences, as well as marketing. Though I really love Greenville, it wasn’t a place where I could grow as a person, gain experience, and become the open-minded, generous leader I want to be. So, I found myself at CMU.
I am currently attending Central Michigan University to pursue a degree in Biomedical Sciences with a minor in leadership and a cultural certificate in East Asian Studies. The cultural certificate also includes the learning of the Chinese language.
I chose CMU for the LAS scholarship and leadership opportunities as well as the medical program here. Due to the construction of the new medical school, I knew Central was moving towards a focus in medicine which was extremely appealing to me.
In the future, after graduating from Central Michigan, I would like to continue my education in medical school (preferably in a warmer state). My main focus once reaching medical school would be spinal therapy and/or spinal surgery. This topic hits home for me personally and truly peaks my interest.
