Classical High School ’14
Providence College ’18
Biology with a minor in Mathematics

“I decided to declare my major in biology because I did some research before entering undergrad and saw that the best choice for me as a premed student was biology – it fulfilled all the requirements I would need to get into med school.”

Graduated From: Classical High School. Campus involvement: “I work on campus for the Office of Institutional Advancement in the Stewardship Department.” She also: Volunteers at Hasbro’s Children Hospital. How did the Crusade help you? “They helped me get to where I am today. The Crusade got me to PC, helped relieve the financial burden on my family, provided a support system, and gave me skills through programs such as Saturday Academy and SAT Prep. I improved a lot educationally and personally as I gained leadership skills and realized that I can do much more than I ever thought I could.” What advice would you give to high school Crusaders entering college? “Never give up. Even when you feel like giving up, always seek help, especially from your professor. Also don’t slack off on reading – give it your all from day one because you will regret it if you do.” What does being successful mean to you? “Being successful to me means coming from your background, persevering, doing things for yourself, and just doing what you love.” Where do you want to be 5 years from now? “Through the Yale Summer Medical and Dental Education program, I was exposed to many professions in the health field. The one I noticed which wasn’t included was primary care. Through this I saw how underrepresented primary care physicians are. In five years I hope to have graduated from Brown’s Warren Alpert Medical School and become a pediatric care provider, representing Hispanics and primary care physicians.” What song makes you happy when you hear it? “In the Eye of the Storm,” by Ryan Stevenson. Name one thing you miss about being a kid: “Spending more time with family.” What do you value most in life? “I value my relationship with God and my family because everything I do is not only for myself but also for them.” What qualities do you value in a person? “I value joyful people who always lend out a helping hand and are accepting of others. I value people who push and want to make you better. I value humble people who remember who they are, where they came from, and stay true to themselves.” If someone wrote a book about your life, what would they title it? More to Come. If you go anywhere in the world, where would you go? “Santorini, Greece. I want to travel to the city of white and blue and feel like I am in a magical place overlooking the ocean.” Favorite quote: “Let all that you do be done in Love,” 1 Corinthians 16:14.
