College: California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, studying biomedical engineering.
Career goal: Make a difference in the health field, because I want to feel like I am making a difference in people’s lives. I hope to travel, and work outside of the country helping others primarily because it would be a dream come true for me.
Community involvement: I am very involved with my community, and am constantly trying to find ways that I can contribute to my community. Transitioning into college, I’ve had to put a lot more focus on academics, but I still do some events. This month I have helped out with a fundraiser for music called Run For Music, as well as volunteered at a food bank. I am also going to be volunteering in South Africa with a program called One Heart Source this summer teaching elementary students English.
Where I see myself in 10 years: I see myself with a bachelor’s degree, or maybe even a master’s, in biomedical engineering. I hope I would be with a well-established company that had plenty of new innovations they were working on, and that I would be with a team working on a product that could save lives.
