Biochemistry on the Pre-Medicine Track
Why you chose your major
I picked my major because I have a passion for helping people. Both of my grandfathers died from potentially preventable diseases, and I want to make a difference for someone else's grandchildren, sister, brother, etc.
Favorite and/or most impactful course
My favorite course in college so far has been the Life 121 class that I am taking right now. Dr. Cressler is very good at presenting the information in a way that is relatable. The lab portion of the course engages students with live animals to study as well!
Research or internship experience
I am currently applying for INBRE UNL which is a research program with UNMC, but I am currently doing a paid internship with Jeff Fortenberry and learning about forming public policy and developing public relations!
I am the President of Students for Life, a Volunteer Chair for the Executive Board at the Newman Center, and am a Peer Mentor for the Honors Program.
Why you chose Nebraska
I decided to come to Nebraska because the minute that I set foot on campus it felt like home. The atmosphere was so welcoming, and I have never for a minute regretted the best decision of my life! GBR FOR LIFE!
