At the age of seven my parents and I immigrated to the United States. I was born in Uganda and grew up in Paterson, New Jersey. From a young age I’ve been passionate about helping others. Throughout high school, I volunteered at the local hospital in my hometown. This greatly influenced my desire to study medicine. Currently, I am pursuing a degree in Biology at Montclair State University. My dream is to be part of a team that does research to find a cure for cancer. I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of ANY. This program will allow me to develop as a professional and gain greater exposure to the medical field as I work to accomplish my goals and dreams.
