About Me: I wanted to become an Ambassador because I have always had a good relationship with the Honors College scholars and personnel. My favorite part about being in HoCo is being able to be a part of a bright network of people and helping out with various social projects. Once I graduate, I plan on using my trained social skills and education to attend medical school and specialize as either a pediatrician or an oncologist with my own practice. I would also like to travel and see as much of the world as I can.
