I attend Rutgers University as an undergraduate student, where I am majoring in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry and minoring in Chemistry. My goal is to pursue a PhD in my field. I enjoy investigating and experimenting with the “microscopic world” through a microscope. My goal is to work hard to build my knowledge and skills in the medical field. Therefore, I always remind myself to be perseverant and determined in the goals that I set for myself. Being an immigrant from a low income family, I embrace the values of hard work and determination, which I believe are the keys to a successful career. Although I anticipate there being challenges along the way, I know that learning from my failures is part of growing.
With the opportunities provided by America Needs You, I want to develop myself and overcome challenges by expanding my social circle to include mentors from different age groups. I want to learn from my mentors and use their constructive feedback to succeed in life. The workshops provided by ANY help to develop me bot personally and professionally. Since most of the Fellows are first-generation college students from low-income families, encouragement and motivation is shared among us. I look forward to my journey in the program, where all the Fellows are motivated and bring energy to everything we do.
