When I attend college in the fall of 2025, I plan to study nonprofit management and physician assistant studies. I have always been passionate about mental health care and hope that there will one day be a world where mental health care is free. In the future, I plan to develop a nonprofit that works to get adequate mental health care to the uninsured and low-income. I am also interested in medicine and plan on becoming a physician assistant.
