In college, I plan to study Neuroscience and Spanish whilst also exploring other subjects I am interested in such as Philosophy and Applied Mathematics. After that, I will attend medical school to fulfill my lifelong dream of becoming a doctor. As a practicing physician, I plan on dedicating a significant portion of my career to conducting medical missionary work abroad as well as working with local communities to revitalize preventative medicine.
