Plans

The impact of my father’s fight to overcome cancer has driven my desire to become a physician, conduct research to improve cancer treatments and ultimately find a cure for cancer. This fall, I will attend Cornell, double-major in biology/psychology, while competing as a decathlete at the NCAA Division I level. My commitment to community will grow stronger with positions of higher leadership in Habitat for Humanity, serving at food banks and shelters, as well as volunteer youth coaching.
