I am a native of Colombia and a Montclair State University student graduating in 2018. I am pursuing a degree in Biology, and I’ve always wanted to work in a hospital. I was lucky to volunteer at Trinitas Hospital as a patient advocate. In doing so, I had wonderful conversations with a very diverse group of patients, staff, and other advocates. The experiences reinforced my belief that reassuring hospital experience can do more than improve people’s health, but change their approach to life. I look forward to a long career in medicine.
