Plans

I plan on majoring in biology/ pre-dental on a pre-med track. I will be a first-generation student as I enroll in college to earn my Bachelor of Science degree. I then plan on applying to dental school, aspiring to work in the health field, specifically oral health. I want to volunteer and help people even after I finish my educational goals. I hope to provide free oral and health care services, from networking with colleagues. I would be able to promote change in small, underserved communities.
