I am currently studying at Rutgers University School of Arts and Sciences pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry. Since a young age I have aspired to become a dentist and I am determined to achieve this goal. In order to be a successful dentist, one must possess a strong intellect and have a passion for serving others while showing compassion. I have demonstrated these traits throughout my life. I greatly enjoy doing community service and volunteering. I also participate on campus healthcare organizations to challenge myself to understand patients’ health concerns. Despite challenging coursework at Rutgers, I have been shadowing a dentist for the past six months, serving as his assistant. Working in a school biology lab, I have enhanced my lab skills. The experiences have confirmed my passion for dentistry. I am devoted to be the type of dentist my community will lean on and respect.
