I am a first generation college student raised by a single parent and loving grandparents in Upper Township, New Jersey. I am currently a student at Rutgers University- New Brunswick pursuing a degree in Exercise Science. I work at Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Science Education Opportunity Fund office as a student secretary. My ultimate goal is to become an Athletic Trainer for the NFL or NBA. My interest in athletic training stems from playing multiple sports from kindergarten through high school including soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, track, and competitive cheerleading. I joined the America Needs You program because it provides me with internship and networking opportunities and public speaking training. These will help turn my dreams into reality.
