I am a first-generation college student at Rutgers University in New Brunswick. I grew up in Carteret and spent many years cheerleading for the Carteret Starz. I dedicated myself to the team and lead them to becoming the North American Champions in 2012. In doing so, I discovered a passion for fitness. I find that the gym is not only a great place to relieve stress, but also forces me to push myself physically and mentally. The gym has made me into a self-motivated young woman, which is reflected in my schoolwork.
I have diverse interests and aspire to work in the medical field, specifically as a dentist. Dentistry is a hands-on career where I can work with new people daily, a career trait I am excited to explore. Dentistry also allows me to help others. Helping others is so important to me that I volunteer with a student organization which travels abroad help the less fortunate.
